Assisi and Basilica di San Francesco Day Trip from Rome

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your day trip starts with a drive from Rome by comfortable coach to Assisi, a UNESCO-listed town in the beautiful hills of Italy’s Umbria region. During the drive, learn about Assisi’s historical significance, most famously as the birthplace of Italy’s patron saint, St. Francis of Assisi.  

    When you arrive, visit the 13th-century Basilica di San Francesco, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world’s biggest pilgrimage destinations, where Catholics come to see St. Francis’ tomb. Then head to a local restaurant for a 3-course lunch of Italian favorites such as pasta al pomodoro (tomato and basil sauce) and roast chicken with potatoes.

    After lunch, continue your Assisi tour at the Basilica of St. Clair (Basilica di Santa Chiara), named for St. Clair, who was a pupil of St. Francis’, followed by the Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels (Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli), located at the bottom of the hill where Assisi sits. Learn about the Porziuncola here, which St. Francis restored after he received a vision of Jesus Christ.

    Your day trip ends with the return drive to Rome.

    It was a very moving experience! Evrything was so amazing and rooted in the history of the life of Saint Francis that it seemed as if you were living in that period. Delicate and well preserved beautiful paintings and medieval architecture creates an unbelievable atmosphere!
