Love visiting the medieval hill towns. The tour was instructive and delightful. My husband and I are in our late 60s and found the pace to be comfortable. We learned a lot about St Francis and St Clare, truly amazing leaders.
Recommended only for those that can walk steep inclines and steps. Not conducive to those in wheelchairs unless they are motorized.
This was a wonderful day trip. It was a small group in a van from Florence with a wonderful guide.
Cortona and Assissi are beautiful towns on the top of the hill.
Great tour guide and bus driver.
When we arrived at Assisi the expected tour guide wasn't able to take our group so a guide was organised for us after lunch. This guide had lived in Assisi for 30 years and was passionate about the town and its history. He spoke English and Spanish fluently and made the experience wonderful. I would advise anyone to visit the lovely town of Assisi. We also stopped at the very large lake on the way back.
The highlight of this tour for me was seeing the church where St. Francis ministered in the 1200's. That said, there were a lot of other beautiful sights along the way. It's important to know that both of the towns visited are hilltop towns, so not only is there a lot of walking- it's uphill. Was fine for us, but may not be ideal for someone elderly or with any sort of mobility issues. Our tour guide was nice, and the one who showed us around Assisi was knowledgeable. We enjoyed the tour overall - maybe would have liked to have more time in Cortona. It was raining the whole day, so that was a bit of a downer, but that wasn't the tour or guide's fault of course. This is a good and fairly inexpensive tour that will take you places from Florence you may not have had the opportunity to access.
It was a small group..but a great tour....comfortable 2 hr. Drive to Assisi with the beautiful Tuscan countryside to see..we were met by a very knowledgeable guide at st. Clare's church who walked us thru town to ST Francis ' church ..then free time to have lunch ....only wish we had more time in this charming town...Cortona was fun but by the time we arrived it was late and getting dark..also raining and most shops closed...our bus driver and guide were superb..highly recommend this tour
Loved the tour!
Great tour, the weather was a bit hit so we did run through Cortona hoping to see as much as we could before it rained, but was lovely to get into these two lovely Hill towns and wander around. the Guide was great as was the town guide in Assisi. The guide warned us about the food in Assisi he was right it was awful, make time to pick something up in Cortona if you do it first.
Great day. Our guide Antonio and driver Raphael were wonderful. Even when we got in an accident! We were only delayed maybe 10 minutes at best, they made it seem like nothing had happened which was nice. I wish we had more time in Cortona as it is a great small town.
