Umbria is famous for the supreme beauty of the countryside, its unique small Mediaeval villages and the excellent food the whole area has to offer. Today we visit Assisi with its laid back atmosphere and the picturesque narrow winding roads. We shall go straight to the world famous Basilica and admire what is still left from the last earthquake that threatened its destruction. This is the City of Peace, and you really breathe serenity and peace everywhere. Dedicated to Saint Francis, the Patron Saint of Italy, Assisi is a real gem in the religious and historic culture, tradition and artistic beauty of the whole country. We shall also be visiting San Damiano and Santa Chiara and later on, in the afternoon there will be a stop at the well known Santa Maria degli Angeli. A mouthwatering dinner awaits us at our very comfortable Hotel in the evening.

Visiting her Basilica and later on Roccaporena her birthplace will be like living a real fairy tale. The vast rocky pyramid that dominates the village of Roccaporena has been called “The Sacred Rock”. Thousands come here to venerate Lo Scoglio di Santa Rita. In some places, the water runs through the canyon-like gorges. A day spent in a beautiful country where we might also stop to buy local products to take home with us.
