Discover Assisi and Cortona on a day trip from Florence, and make the most of a private driver, just for your group. First, you’ll travel to the pilgrimage town of Assisi to walk in the footsteps of St. Francis, Italy’s patron saint. Learn about his life in the town, and visit the basilicas of St. Francis and St. Claire. After a break for lunch, you’ll continue to Cortona for some sightseeing at your leisure. Entrance fees and food are at your own expense.
  • Assisi and Cortona day trip with a private driver
  • See Giotto frescoes inside the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi
  • Visit the Basilica of St. Chiara, then enjoy free time to explore
  • Spend time in Cortona, a Tuscan town that featured in Under the Tuscan Sun
  • Use a convenient hotel pickup and drop-off service from Florence
Start your day trip with a pickup at 8:30am from your Florence hotel, then sit back as your driver navigates the roads, allowing you to admire the landscapes of Tuscany and Umbria.

Your first stop is the hilltop town of Assisi, a place of pilgrimage that’s famed as the birthplace of both St. Francis and St. Clare.

Enjoy free time to explore the town at your own pace, and stop for lunch, if you wish. Then, it’s time to return to your driver for the journey to Cortona, a town that featured in the 2003 film Under the Tuscan Sun.

Use your free time here to stroll amid Etruscan treasures, medieval architecture, and even artwork from the Renaissance era. Entrance fees, food, and wine are at your own expense.

Later, you’ll meet back up with your driver for the journey back to Florence. Your day trip ends with a hotel drop-off.

Good driver

We had a good trip. Our driver was nice and friendly and even picked us up when we got lost and didn’t make it to the meeting point. He also took us at the plaza of Michael Angelo even if that was not included in the tour!

We were booked on a private tour of Assisi, but because of a mix-up in the bookings we ended up on the group tour to Assisi, Cortona and Passignano Sul Trasimeno. This turned out to be good for us because we ended up having Julio as our tour guide. Julio was fantastic. He led a group of English and Spanish speaking tourists. He was able to switch effortlessly between languages. He was entertaining and very knowledgable and considerate of the needs to the tour group. He gave us extra free time where he could. The afternoon in Assisi was definitely the highlight: very moving and well presented. Scenery on the way was stunning. Ten out of ten Julio!
