Full description
Explore Assisi on a 3-hour walking tour with a guide who will tell you about the history, art, and local traditions of one of the most famous hill towns of Italy. Meet your guide and head to the ruins of the ancient Roman amphitheater, which was later put to use in the Middle Ages as a quarry for stone to build local houses. See how the amphitheater later was turned into a private neighborhood. From this vantage point, the view of the Rocca Maggiore medieval castle is one of the best in the city. Continuing along narrow alleys and through medieval squares you’ll reach the Cathedral of Saint Rufino Cathedral, the Basilica of Saint Claire, and Piazza del Comune, the main city square. At the square you’ll see the Minerva temple, one of the best-preserved Roman temples in Italy. It is surrounded by imposing medieval government buildings. The tour then continues on to the Saint Francis Basilica, which is well known for its 13th and 14th-century frescoes created by Italian masters of the time, including Giotto.

    A brilliant guide who went above and beyond the standard tour.

    We could not have been more delighted. We were the only two people on the tour which was brilliant. Our guide could not have done more to make our tour interesting and enjoyable - she had a great sense of humour. She showed us that there was more to Assisi than the basilica and the frescos (which were wonderful) - there was a real range of interesting points. She went well beyond the standard tour and gave us all sorts of helpful information for visiting surrounding villages. What a lovely lady!

    This was a fabulous tour and our tour guide was wonderful. She has lived in Assisi her whole life and is passionate about this gorgeous town. Her depth of knowledge and warmth made our visit to Assisi all the more enjoyable - we only wished we could have stayed longer!

    Excellent tour, would give it 6 out of 5 stars if I could.

    Perfect tour in every way. Our guide (Michele) was fantastic. We really felt like we covered the town. And we throughly enjoyed Michele's stories of St Francis and St Clare which he wove through the entire tour. He knowledge of history and art made the morning tour an absolute pleasure. We stayed in Perugia and took day tours throughout the area. Assisi itself shouldn't be missed. In fact, can't wait to return.
