Guided tour of Assisi

Centre of art in an atmosphere of absolute inner peace!

Assisi is an ancient center of Umbrian and then Roman foundation, Which Still Retains its medieval appearance. The whiteness of Its historic buildings in pink and white stone of Mount Subasio fits perfectly with the most intimate and reli-gious town. Protagonists of Assisi are the many places connected with the life of St. Francis of Assisi and That of Saint Clare, founder of the Poor Clares in Assisi. We will visit the Basilica of Santa Chiara, with the crucifix that spokes to St. Francis in the crypt and the remains of St. Clare of Assisi, the New Church, built on the site of the family home of Francis, who keeps the room -prison where the saint was imprisoned by her father, at the ancient Roman Forum, where you'll overlook buildings from the medieval and Roman Temple of Minerva and, above all, the Basilica of San Francesco, completely painted by the masters of the most important artists of the thirteenth century: Giotto. The crypt contains the tomb of the saint.
