Enjoy walking along the narrow alleys and through the medieval squares of Assisi with a local guide, who will tell you about the history, art, and traditions of one of the most famous hill towns in Italy. At the end of the tour, you will also have the opportunity to taste some local products.
The tour starts from the ruins of the ancient Roman amphitheater, whose stones were used to build houses in the Middle Ages and which later turned into a private neighborhood. From this vantage point, the view of the Rocca Maggiore medieval castle is one of the best in town.
You'll then reach the Cathedral of Saint Rufino, the Basilica of Saint Claire, and Piazza del Comune, the main city square. Here, surrounded by imposing medieval government buildings, you'll see the Temple of Minerva, one of the best-preserved Roman temples in Italy.
The tour continues on to the Basilica of Saint Francis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The church is well known for its 13th and 14th-century frescoes by Italian masters of the time, including Giotto.
