St. Francis of Assisi
 is perhaps the most well loved saint in the country of Italy and perhaps in the world. His birthplace, Assisi, is one of the most beautiful cities to visit on your trip to Italy.

Stefano Rome Tours offers a unique journey in the footsteps of Saint Francis and Saint Claire, taking you to the most significant basilicas, sacred monastery and lively squares in Assisi for a joyful experience in the beautiful region of Umbria.

Private Assisi Day Tours from Rome

Because Stefano Rome Tours has a special license, we can drive directly into the historical center of Assisi, saving you valuable time and long walks to see this enchanting town and access its remarkable basilicas.

On your relaxing journey from Rome towards Assisi, you will enjoy the beautiful Italian countryside scenery along the way as you leave the rustic countryside of Lazio and enter the lush region of Umbria.

 

SANTA MARIA DEGLI ANGELI


Your Assisi tour from Rome will take you will first visit Basilica Santa Maria degli Angeli (located in the town by the same name, Santa Maria degli Angeli), which is respected as the place of St. Francis' death.

Inside the grand Baroque basilica are two small structures: the Capella del Transito and the Porziuncola.

The Cappella del Transito is the small room in which St. Francis died on October 3, 1226. Above the small altar in a glass case is the rope belt of Saint Francis.

 

ASSISI


Our tour will continue to Assisi with a stop to visit the Basilica of St. Francis, which consists of an upper level and a lower level, known as the Upper Basilica and the Lower Basilica. It is also in this Basilica that St. Francis is interred.

The churches are decorated with many beautiful frescoes by late medieval painters including Cimabue, Giotto di Bondone, Simone Martini and Pietro Lorenzetti. The basilica was begun immediately after St. Francis’ canonization in 1228.

From here, you will make our way to the lively Piazza del Comune, the town's main square, built on the site of the Roman forum.

After lunch, you can visit the church of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva (St Mary Above Minerva), also located in the main square.

Rome to Assisi Tour Santa Maria Sopra Minerva Church 

It was built in the 1st Century BC, and when a female statue was discovered there, it was thought to be a temple of the pagan goddess Minerva.

However, a later discovery of a votive plaque to Hercules makes it more likely that the temple is dedicated to him. In 1539 the inner sanctum of the temple was transformed into the church of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, with further alterations added in the Baroque style during the 17th century.

We then visit the Basilica of St. Clare (Santa Chiara) where her preserved body is on display in a crypt, with a layer of wax covering her face.

Nearby are garments worn by both Saint Francis and Saint Clare, and some locks of Saint Clare’s hair that Saint Francis cut off when she joined his ministry. This basilica is Gothic in style and was built between 1257 and 1260.

Just outside of Assisi, we will visit the San Damiano convent and church.

This simple yet sacred place is where Saint Francis received his calling in 1205 and where Saint Clare died in 1253.

After hearing a voice telling him to “Rebuild My church”,  Saint Francis reconstructed the little church with his own hands, having literally followed the message that he was given.

Saint Clare founded the order of ‘Poor Clares’ here in 1212 and lived there most of her life. The wooden choir stalls in the church date from the early 16th century, but those in the little Choir of the Poor Clares are original from the time of Saint Clare (13th century).
