Places recommended by our drivers for the Assisi tour

Basilica di San Francesco patrimonio UNESCO dal 2000

Basilica of St Francis

On arrival in Assisi, your driver will take you to the Basilica of St Francis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000. Always considered a true treasure of Italian Christian art, the basilica is divided into two parts, plus the crypt that houses the tomb of Italy’s patron saint. In addition to the splendour of the structure, we recommend a visit to the interior to admire the frescoes by the great Italian masters such as Giotto and Cimabue.

viaggio Basilica di Santa Chiar con ncc

Basilica of St Clare

We continue our journey towards the Basilica of Santa Chiara, just a few kilometres away. The two basilicas face each other to emphasise the connection between the two saints. Once inside, you can admire the Gothic architecture and the relics of the saint. From both basilicas you have a beautiful view of the city.

visita con driver Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli

Basilica of Saint Mary of the Angels

We move outside the ancient walls to enjoy the view of the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, with its Roman Baroque-inspired façade. Your driver will take you close to the entrance to allow you to enter and visit the Porziuncola, a small church built inside the Basilica itself. It was here that St Francis accepted his vocation and it is still one of the most important places for Franciscans.

Hermitage of the Prisons

The last stop on our itinerary is the Hermitage of the Prisons, the place where St Francis and his devotees used to retreat to pray. We drive to the building, which was built on the slopes of Mount Subasio, next to some natural caves that were already frequented by hermits in the early Christian period.
