This private tour of Assisi and Perugia begins with a lovely drive north of Rome into one of the Italy’s most picturesque regions, Umbria, one of the smallest Regions of Italy.
Once in Perugia, visit the amazing sites such as the Maggiore Fountain, the gothic Basilica of San Lorenzo and the Town Hall within Palazzo dei Priori. Perugia is also famous for the chocolate production, like the World wide famous Baci Perugina, The chocolate kisses! And for chocolate related events, like the “Eurochocolate“. It takes place every October. If you’re in Rome around that period, make sure not to miss it! A visit of the chocolate factory “Perugina” can be also planned.
Other events in Perugia take place each year, like the “Umbria Jazz“!
A visit to the Basilica of St. Francis is definitely a must. It’s also the resting place of the famous Saint, Francis. Hence the Basilica’s name. Beautiful, historical and religious location, that became a UNESCO world heritage site in 2000. Visit the Basilica of Santa Chiara next! Built around the church that housed the remains of St. Francis first.
If time permits we can drive up to the Eremo delle Carceri, a small hermitage on top of a Mountain in Umbria. On the way back to Rome enjoy a final stop in the town of Santa Maria degli Angeli (Saint Mary of the Angels) to see another beautiful basilica. Where the Franciscan movement first started!
