Full description

Enjoy a fascinating and evocative tour, retracing the steps ofSt Francis of Assisi on board a carriage: an experience that will take you back in time!

You will visit the magical places of Assisi and Rivotorto and our local guides will accompany you on a journey through the history, culture and traditions of an area waiting to be discovered.

Carried by horses, you will wander through the village streets, past churches, sanctuaries and iconic sites, in the shadow of Mount Subasio and the unspoilt nature of the Umbrian Apennines.

The walk will culminate with a visit to a wine cellar, followed by an excellent tasting of local wines and typical products.

What we will do

The appointment is set for 2 p.m. at Rivotorto, a hamlet of Assisi (PG). We will be welcomed by our guides, seated in the carriage and be ready to set off immediately.

The first stop on our tour will be the Sanctuary of St Francis, which houses a small structure called the Tugurio, which has gone down in history because it was the place where the Umbrian saint founded theFranciscan order.

We will then proceed to a small church known to be the leper colony where Francis and Clare treated leprosy patients. Next stop will be the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli and the Porziuncola, a symbolic place of Franciscan worship.

After this plunge into history and religious architecture, it will also be time to think about the palate and discover the food and wine goodness that Umbria has to offer. The coach will then take us to a wine cellar where an excellent wine tasting awaits us.

Before activating our taste buds, the owners will give us a tour of the vineyards and cellars, explaining the difference between the various types of grapes and the processes involved in their production. Then we will sit down at the table to taste a selection of the best labels and typical local products.

After the convivial moment, we will be taken by carriage back to the starting point and we will say goodbye until the next adventure!

The activity lasts a total of about 4 hours.
