Assisi w/Driver -In the Footsteps of the Saints Private DayTrip from Rome By Car

Assisi is famously associated with Saint Francis and Saint Clare (the founders of the Franciscan order and the Order of the Poor Clares), who lived in this captivating medieval town that rests peacefully on the serene slopes of Mount Subasio, overlooking the breathtaking vistas of the Umbrian countryside.
You will be awe-inspired by the perfectly preserved town primarily built with pale pink and grey stones quarried nearby, its imposing basilicas that house the tombs of the saints, and the ruins of the imperial fortress that crowns Assisi.
