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 architectonic and artistic jewels of Assisi and Cortona. ASSISI, world-renowned as the home of Saint Francis, crowns the spur of a hill overlooking a picturesque valley. Let our guide lead you through the narrow, winding streets of this medieval town and learn about its charming history. Inside the Basilica of San Francesco d’Assisi, you will admire Giotto’s frescos of The life of San Francesco and discover why it is a fundamental pilgrimage site. Next, you will visit the Basilica of Santa Chiara– dedicated to Saint Clare of Assisi, a follower of Saint Francis. After you will have free time to stroll around and breathe in the atmosphere of peace characterizing this mystical city. The tour continues with a visit to Santa Maria degli Angeli Church, the birthplace of the Franciscan Order. Crossing the border back into Tuscany you reach CORTONA, the last stage of this special day. This beautiful small town built by the Etruscans, is famous for its architectural 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!
