Your sightseeing transfer between Rome and Florence begins with a pleasant drive through the countryside where you will make your way to Assisi, a medieval town in the lush region of Umbria situated on the slopes of Mount Subasio.
Once you arrive you will have 3 wonderful hours to spend freely as you wish. Your luggage will remain safe inside the vehicle with your driver while you sightsee.
In Assisi you will have the opportunity to visit the Basilica of St. Francis, which is made up of an upper level and a lower level, known as the Upper Church and the Lower Church. The construction of the Basilica began immediately after St Frances was canonized as a Saint, and his tomb can be visited below the Lower Church, just follow the signs.
The Basilica is decorated with many stunning frescoes created by late medieval artists such as Giotto di Bondone, Cimabue, Pietro Lorenzetti and Simone Martini.
The town’s main square is Piazza del Comune built on the site of an ancient Roman forum. The ancient 1st century BC Roman temple that was dedicated to pagan goddess Minerva dominates the square with its towering belltower.
During the 16th century, the temple was transformed into the church of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, with further restorations and decorations in the rich Baroque style you can admire now.
In and near the square you can find a variety of local restaurants that serve up a delicious Umbrian lunch.
Nearby is the 13th century Gothic style Basilica of St. Clare (Santa Chiara) where the preserved body of Saint Clare is on display in a crypt with a layer of wax covering her face. Also displayed are garments worn by both St. Francis and St. Clare, various objects used by the saints, and locks of St. Clare’s hair. Here you can also see the original crucifix believed to have spoken to St Francis inside the run down San Damiano church prior to his conversion.
Outside the basilica in the piazza is a lovely patio where you can take in the verdant patchwork of the Umbrian countryside.
From here your journey will continue to your final destination.
