Umbria is the hometown of worldwide known saints; St. Francis the patron saint of Italy and founder of the Franciscan order, St. Clare founder of the order of St. Clare and equally famous St. Rita of Cascia. Born in Roccaporena in 1381, she is one of the most popular saints of the Catholic Church. Her related symbols are roses and figs. The Basilica was built in 1937 and consecrated in 1947. The Monastery where she lived for forty years was rebuilt in the 18th Century and houses the nuns of the Augustinian community. You may take a time for personal prayer. The trip continues to Spoleto, a gorgeous Middle Ages uphill town; Etruscan and Roman Age buildings such as a theatre and an amphitheatre are located in the upper village.

This would have to be one of the best tours I’ve ever done!! For anyone who wants to see St Rita’s birth and resting place they must book this tour as it was the easiest and most enjoyable way to get there. With the help of Gianluca and Edda, who made sure we got to see everything we wanted in Cascia, we had the most incredible day. Their flexibility, patience and positive attitude were the absolute highlight of the trip, we can’t thank them enough for everything they did! 100/10 experience!
