Description

Depart from Rome in early morning and head for the gentle Umbrian hills. Cross the lush Tiber valley and pass along the Via Flaminia, once a major Roman road. Look out for medieval villages, including Orte and Deruta, which are scattered throughout the green countryside.

Upon arrival, take a walking tour around the lanes of the quiet UNESCO World Heritage-listed town. As you walk, your private guide will explain the significance of the town's churches and attractions, and their connections to the treasured Italian patron saint, St Francis of Assisi.

Discover why the saint is held in such high esteem, and find out where he is believed to have been born and where he spent his early childhood. Stop to explore the Church of Santa Chiara, which is dedicated to another Catholic saint from Assisi who was a contemporary and protégé of St Francis.

Marvel at the beauty of the picture-perfect town square, Piazza del Commune, which is dominated by a 13th-century palace, known as Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo. Visit the nearby Roman Temple of Minerva and Assisi's Basilica di San Francesco. The interior here is embellished with remarkable medieval frescoes, many of which depict scenes from the life of St Francis.

In the middle of the day, grab a bite to eat at your leisure (own expense). Afterward, continue on to the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, another popular pilgrimage site near Assisi. See the scared Porziuncola chapel, which was restored by St Francis, and view the site where St Francis died.

In late afternoon, travel back to Rome, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.
