After our buffet breakfast, we shall leave for a most interesting tour of the surrounding area. This region is referred to as the green heart of Italy. Umbria is famous for the supreme beauty of the countryside, it’s 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 Culture, Tradition and artistic beauty of the whole country.

This is the capital town of the Umbria Region and dominates from the top of a hill like many other towns in this region over a magnificent panorama. A stroll along the main street will lead us to the busy centre where many will be lured by the elegant shops and authentic piazzas. Chocolate lovers will discover the well known BACI PERUGINA in their place of origin. A must try and the best souvenir one can take home for his/her loved ones. On our way back to our Hotel, time permitting, we might stop at a big Commercial Centre for some shopping.

Today after breakfast will take us to the wonderful Cascia which immediately brings to our minds, the great Saint Rita that has inspired such great devotion. 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 beautiful country where we might also stop to buy local products to take home with us.
