Download an informative audio guide to explore Assisi’s most famous site. Discover everything about the Upper and Lower Basilica, the House of the Tomb, as well as the crypt of St. Francis.

Learn fascinating stories about the façade of the upper Basilica, with its large portal with double doors and a large rose window framed with symbols of the evangelists that dominate Assisi’s skyline.

With this audioguide, you will discover the most fascinating masterpieces Cimabue, Giotto, Pietro Cavallini, Jacopo Torriti were involved with and at a later time also the Sienese painter Simone Martini and Pietro Lorenzetti.
