What To Expect

Your day trip starts with pickup from your Rome hotel by private vehicle for the scenic drive out of the city and into Umbria, a region known for its hills and medieval villages like Orte and Deruta.

When you arrive in Assisi, a World Heritage site, follow your private guide on a walking tour of this tranquil town, listening to commentary about the local churches and other attractions that are connected to St Francis of Assisi, Italy’s patron saint, who was from here. See the site where it’s believed he was born and where he spent his early childhood, and visit the Church of Santa Chiara.

Soak up the charm of the Piazza del Commune, the town square dominated by Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo, a 13th-century palace, and check out more landmarks like the Roman Temple of Minerva and Basilica di San Francesco, whose interior is decorated with frescoes that depict scenes from St Francis’ life.

Take a break to enjoy lunch (own expense), and then round out your tour with a visit to the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, a pilgrimage site outside the city. You’ll view the Porziuncola chapel, which St Francis restored, and see the site where he died. Your tour then ends with the drive back to Rome for hotel drop-off.

Itinerary
Pass By:  
DriverinRome Transportation & Tours
During this Day tour excursion from Rome you will have the chance to travel to real Italy, far away from the modern highways and large cities, in the heart of the Umbrian countryside, where small ancient villages are waiting to be discovered. One of them is Assisi, an oasis of art, architecture and spirituality and the home of Saint Francis, one of Italy's most beloved saints.
Admission Ticket Free
Pass By:  
Basilica di Santa Chiara
.Leaving Rome in a northerly direction, you will cross the valley of the Tevere, passing by typical medieval villages such as Deruta, Todi e Perugia before arriving in Assisi. Here you will start your walk through the narrow streets of the village to see the church of Santa Chiara, containing the remains of Saint Clare, a follower of Saint Francis and founder of the Order of Poor Ladies, and then on to see the house where St. Francis was born and spent the first years of his life.
Duration: 30 Minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Basilica Superiore di San Francesco d' Assisi
All roads will take you to the Basilica of San Francesco. This grandiose and gorgeously embellished Basilica is a rather incongruous memorial to a man who preached and lived a simple life of poverty, abstinence, and renunciation of worldly goods in search of greater spirituality. It is however, one of the world's most wonderful encounters between religion and art. Unique paintings by Cimabue, Pietro Lorenzetti, Simone Martini and Giotto, have made the Basilica of St. Francis a fundamental reference point for the development of Italian and European art and architecture.
Duration: 60 Minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Pass By:  
Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli - Porziuncola
Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli where you can see the Porziuncola Chapel, the place from where the Franciscan movement started, and the site where St. Francis died in 1226. Driving back to your hotel, revel in the memory of the day coming to its end.
Duration: 30 Minutes
Admission Ticket Free

Very disappointing. I was on a Viator day trip in to Assissi Spring 2014 that was great. I assumed we were signing up for the same trip in 2015. Not even close! The driver was very nice but knew very little about Assissi. The elevator from a parking area to the top of the town....shopping, eating in Assissi, St Francis's birth place, etc. it was as if we were not even in the place as the year before. Why did this happen?
