Assisi is known for being the city where St. Francis was born and lived, patron saint of Italy, and Santa Chiara.
Famous and recognized by UNESCO for its magnificent history and the beautiful Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi. In the late 1990’s as the whole of Umbria Assisi was struck by a violent earthquake that destroyed part of the upper arch of the basilica of San Francesco, now fortunately rebuilt.
The stop in one of the classic Umbrian restaurants is a must, due to the peculiarities of good food and red wine. Short but amazing tour!
