The Basilica of San Francesco in Assisi will certainly be your first, unmissable, stop: from Cimabue to Giotto, from Lorenzetti to Martini, you will be enchanted by the various works of art, such as the beautiful frescoes, and you can also visit the crypt that preserves the remains of the saint. There are other basilicas in Assisi, such as that of Santa Chiara, in the Gothic-Umbrian style, which hosts the Crucifix for which it is said that St. Francis was inspired by his way of life. Do not miss a visit to the Temple of Minerva and stroll through Piazza del Comune where you can admire Palazzo dei Priori and Torre del Popolo tower. The journey through history and art continues during your trip to Spello, among the mosaics of the Roman House, where you can discover the three doors and the Roman walls: Porta Consolare, Porta Venere and Porta Urbica.

Assisi, the city of Saint Francis

Visit the Basilica of Santa Chiara and the Temple of Minerva and stroll through the splendid Piazza del Comune, bordered by the Popolo Tower and Palazzo dei Priori.
