Come join me on a new way of touring, connected from afar but present as if you were here! With this live-streamed guided tour, you will experience the thrill of getting to know Assisi through the eyes and heart of a local who has been living in the city forever.
Am I talking about Assisi, the city of Saint Francis? Yes, but the city is also much more than that. I will mention St. Francis and the religious figures who have marked the history of Assisi, but we will also wander through the alleyways to discover details and hidden gems that sometimes even the locals don't know! What are peacocks, lions and other fantastic animals doing around town? What was a dead man's door?
From one curiosity to the other, we will crisscross the historic centre of Assisi. Walk with me from the area of the amphitheatre, passing through the centres of power (Piazza del Comune, its public buildings and its underground) to arrive at the great attraction of the city, the Basilica of San Francesco. Tales, anecdotes and real historical facts will accompany us throughout this tour as we learn how the ancient Romans, the medieval Saints and Blesseds, and the modern pilgrims, have contributed to making this city unique and a UNESCO heritage site since 2000.
This Online Experience will give you a pleasant trip back in time from the Umbrian origins of Assisi up to the present and an invitation to come to discover the beauty of this city in person!
