ASSISI

An eternal destination for everyone wanting to see the places where Saint Francis and Saint Claire were born, lived and died. A small city propped up on the slopes of Mount Subasio where you can still appreciate its Umbrian-Roman origins, through the Medieval Age and up until today. Together with almost all its surrounding territory, Assisi was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the year 2000, described as constituting a unique example of continuous history. The World Heritage Committee included on its list the Basilica and other sites important to the Franciscan Order, due to the fact that they represent an amalgamation of masterpieces stemming from creative human genius aside from being a fundamental reference in European and international art history . In particular, the Basilica of St. Francis has been defined as an extraordinary example of an architectonic complex that has heavily influenced the development of art (see Cimabue and Giotto frescos) and architecture. Not far away from our structure you can also reach the little church of S.Damiano and the tiny chapel of Porziuncola, placed inside of the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli where you can feel the atmosphere that brought the patron saint of Italy to the conversion.
