Orvieto and Assisi
We offer you a panoramic tour of the cities of Orvieto and Assisi aboard our luxury cars and assisted by our drivers who will be at your service for the duration of the trip.
We will leave Rome heading north and cross the green valleys of the Tiber River. Our first stop will be in Orvieto and its magnificent 14th century cathedral with gothic architecture. We will then continue our journey admiring the Umbrian landscape unfolding among olive groves and vineyards. Famous are the wines from Orvieto, Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino (inserting an extra stop at this point of the journey to taste the wines of the area is a must). Our itinerary will continue to Assisi, the mystical city of San Francesco.
Assisi is still surrounded by the ancient walls, built on the green side of Mount Subasio. We will visit the Basilica of San Francesco, with inside the tomb of the saint and the first Renaissance masters such as Giotto and Cimabue. We will continue towards the church of Santa Maria degli Angeli, where St. Francis died in 1226.
Our tour will end with a visit to the Church of Santa Chiara, the site where St. Francis was born and lived.
