Full description

Discover the charm of Assisi and retrace the footsteps of Saint Francis as you ride in a carriage through the narrow streets of the town and the surrounding countryside: anexperience of total relaxation and immersion in nature!

Accompanied by the rhythm of the horses' hooves, you will enjoy a suggestive itinerary, getting out of the carriage to visit some iconic places such as the Franciscan Sanctuary of Rivotorto and the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli.

All this in the shadow of Mount Subasio, which dominates the Umbrian valley with its slopes covered in thick forests and rich in biodiversity.

What we will do

We will meet at Rivotorto, a hamlet of Assisi (PG). We will be welcomed by guides and horses already harnessed and ready to take us for a ride. We will climb into the carriage and move in the direction of the Sanctuary of St Francis.

Here we will stop to visit the Tugurio, a small ancient stone settlement where the saint of Assisi founded theFranciscan order. Then we will continue to the leprosarium, a kind of ancient hospital where Francis and Clare treated leprosy patients.

The last point of interest we will touch on is the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, and inside we will visit the Porziuncola chapel, an obligatory stop for all pilgrims.

On the way back we will admire the countryside around Assisi and Rivotorto, we will be immersed in a dimension of absolute tranquillity and breathe in an atmosphere that seems suspended in time and history.

The activity lasts a total of 1 hour.
