ASSISI & CORTONA
Written By Admin
From the mysticism of the Umbrian religious town to the film set of “Under the Tuscan Sun”. Let us take you through the rolling green hills of Tuscany and Umbria to discover the artistic jewels of Assisi and Cortona. ASSISI crowns the spur of a hill overlooking a picturesque valley characterized by gentle hills and vineyards. But above all it’s worldrenowned as the home of Saint Francis. Let our guide lead you through the winding streets and alleyways of this medieval town and learn about its history walking in San Francesco and Santa Chiara’s footsteps. You will be awed by the Basilica of San Francesco d’Assisi, where you can admire Giotto’s frescos and discover why it is a fundamental pilgrimage site. After the guided tour of Assisi you will have free time to stroll around the shops or sit outside the cafés and breathe in the atmosphere of peace characterizing this mystical city. The tour continues with a visit to the Santa Maria degli Angeli Church, one of the landmarks of the city, at the foot of the hill, the birthplace of the Franciscan Order. Crossing the border back into Tuscany you reach CORTONA, the last stage of this special day. This small town was built by the Etruscans on the top of a hill and is famous for its rchitectural wonders and amazing views over the surrounding landscape. Cortona is also known internationally for the movie “Under the Tuscan Sun” (USA/Italy): this is your chance to play the part and feel like you’re in a real film-set!
