Private walking tour of Assisi and the Basilica of San Francesco

With your expert private guide, you will visit the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, a sixteenth-century church that preserves the Porziuncola, the chapel where St. Francis used to gather in prayer, linked to the exceptional story of St. Francis and the spread of Franciscan ideology and for this reason a symbol of the ideals of spirituality and peace. Continue towards the Basilica of San Francesco, the centre of Franciscan spirituality, a place that preserves and guards the mortal remains of the seraphic saint. Commissioned by Pope Gregory IX as Specialis Ecclesia (Special Church), entrusted to the Order of Friars Minor, it houses priceless art treasures, such as the extraordinary frescoes by Cimabue, Giotto, Simone Martini, Pietro Lorenzetti.
