What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Assisi Day Trip from Rome

Visit the Basilica di San Francesco

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.

The tour itself was lovely but what I got was literally a driver , who did nothing but just drive.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this May 2015

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?
