Full description
Explore Assisi on a 3-hour walking tour with a guide who will tell you about the history, art, and local traditions of one of the most famous hill towns of Italy. Meet your guide and head to the ruins of the ancient Roman amphitheater, which was later put to use in the Middle Ages as a quarry for stone to build local houses. See how the amphitheater later was turned into a private neighborhood. From this vantage point, the view of the Rocca Maggiore medieval castle is one of the best in the city. Continuing along narrow alleys and through medieval squares you’ll reach the Cathedral of Saint Rufino Cathedral, the Basilica of Saint Claire, and Piazza del Comune, the main city square. At the square you’ll see the Minerva temple, one of the best-preserved Roman temples in Italy. It is surrounded by imposing medieval government buildings. The tour then continues on to the Saint Francis Basilica, which is well known for its 13th and 14th-century frescoes created by Italian masters of the time, including Giotto.

    Assissi was beautiful and a wonderful place to visit. Having a tour and understanding the history made our stop at Assissi even more amazing. We were late for a small group tour and our guide kept in contact with us and met us as soon as possible. She was excellent.

    The most beautiful of Assisi in half a day. Countless experiences, facts, explanations about buildings, paintings, churches, Francis, etc... which would otherwise not be found on the internet or in travel guides. Guide Francesca even worked overtime to give us all the explanations. Highly recommended, especially at the beginning of eg a few days of Assisi; after that you can visit other monuments, churches, etc... much better yourself. Assisi is overwhelming, moving, wonderfully beautiful, very cozy and so authentic, with very friendly people above all. Not to mention the restaurants! Super umbrian rustic kitchen and oh so cheap.

    our guide, Francesca, was very knowledgeable in art and history. we started at Basilica of Saint Clare, walked through town to Basillica of Saint Francis. There is so much art to see in both places. She went the extra mile to see that I did not have 100's of stairs. Assisi is very hilly, lots of stairs. But the streets between these 2 churches were mild. I have never been disappointed in the tours I have purchased through Get Your Guide.
