Full description

It's not all about St Francis on this guided tour on foot. Assisi is the most popular town of central Italy, where pilgrims and tourists arrive every year from all over the world. Realize that Assisi is an amazing site with an ancient history that goes far beyond Saint Francis, however. The tour stars from the main square Piazza del Comune and continues to Chiesa Nuova, St. Clare Basilica, and St. Rufino, which is the cathedral of Assisi. During this tour you will discover that Assisi was a shrine town many centuries before St. Francis. The tour will continue to St. Francis Basilica, a massive, 2-level church, consecrated in 1253. Admire the 13th-century frescoes inside, portraying the life of St. Francis. These frescoes have been attributed to such artists as Giotto and Cimabue. Tours are bilingual and conducted in Italian and English.
