Admission to the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi
Explore the hillside town of Assisi, perched on the steep slopes of Monte Subasio and overlooking sweeping plains below, with a private guide. Discover the town top to bottom as you wander its squares and streets and stop at the city's spiritual heart, the Basilica of St. Francis.
Meet your guide and set out to uncover the past of charming Assisi—this hillside medieval town, with its cluster of rosy-hued structures, was the birthplace of St. Francis and is a famed center for religious pilgrimage. Delve into the history of Italy's patron saint and the Franciscan religious order that he founded as you tour the Basilica di San Francesco and the surrounding area.
Leave the basilica behind and head to the Minerva Temple. This impressive edifice, whose ancient, colonnaded façade dates from the 1st century, houses a Baroque church built in 1539. Step out of the temple and wander across the Piazza del Comune, making your way uphill for sweeping views out over the olive groves of the Umbra Valley.
Finally, head to the Basilica di Santa Chiara—this pink stone church with its large rose window houses the remains of St. Clare of Assisi, named the patron saint of television in 1958 for her 13th-century visions of a Mass being held several miles away.
