By booking the Assisi Private Tour you'll have an exclusive English guide at your disposal to learn about the history of Saint Francis of Assisi, and discover why this city is such an important place of pilgrimage.
Assisi Private Tour
The Assisi private tour will start from the Piazza Inferiore di San Francesco. We'll spend three hours walking around the city stopping to see the main monuments and any other points of interest you may find interesting.
First, we'll visit the two jewels of the city, the Upper Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi and the Lower Basilica of St. Francis (entrance fee not included). Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000, this place of worship was constructed in honour of the founder of the Franciscan order and is a must-see visit for those staying in the Perugia region.
For about an hour and a half, we'll discover the numerous chapels that form the sanctuary and the crypt containing the mortal remains of St. Francis.
The tour will continue to the Temple of Minerva, located in the popular Piazza del Comune. Although it currently functions as a church, the origins of this place are more related to the Old Roman Empire. You'll discover this and much more during the visit.
Afterwards, we'll go to the Chiesa Nuova, an important place of worship as it was built on the site of the former family home of St. Francis of Assisi.
Then we'll walk 5 minutes to the Basilica of St. Clare, where the remains of this Italian saint, who together with St. Francis, founded the order of the Poor Clares, rest.
The tour will end by learning more about the history of the city and the life that St. Francis led in this Italian town.
