Porziuncola Museum Entrance Ticket

At the behest of Pope Saint Pius V (1566-1572), in order to keep the chapels of the Porziuncola, the Transito and the Roseto and other places made sacred by the memory of St. Francis, and welcome the many pilgrims who come to visit them, between 1569 and 1679 the great Basilica of S. Maria degli Angeli was built.
The original project of Galeazzo Alessi (1512-1572) is foreseen by a rigorous structural simplicity, conforming to the Franciscan ideal of poverty. The strong telluric events that shake Umbria in 1832 cause serious damage to the Basilica.
At the end of a long and complex restoration, directed by the architect Luigi Poletti, it was reopened to worship on 8 September 1840.
The façade is radically reworked on a project by Cesare Bazzani, with the intention of conferring a monumentality worthy of the importance of the Sanctuary. This was inaugurated on June 8, 1930 and at its summit an imposing statue of the Virgin in gilded bronze was placed.

Il Museo della Porziuncola è parte integrante dell’itinerario dei pellegrini e dei turisti che dalla Porziuncola, al Transito, alla Cappella delle Rose visitano le memorie di san Francesco presso la Basilica Papale di Santa Maria degli Angeli e offre una sosta di maggior comprensione di questi luoghi avvalendosi di documenti di archivio, di plastici e di ricostruzioni grafiche.Le sale ospitano in successione cronologica le opere che hanno reso famoso il Museo. In particolare: il Crocifisso di Giunta Pisano (1236), primo esempio in Italia di crocifisso patiens in una croce monumentale; il San Francesco e Angeli del Maestro di San Francesco (sec. XIII); una tavola raffigurante san Francesco attribuita al Cimabue; la Madonna del Latte, una splendida scultura in pietra policroma della fine del XIV secolo; un pregevole dossale in terracotta invetriata, opera magistrale di Andrea della Robbia (1475

Pozzo di San Patrizio Entrance Ticket

Pozzo di San Patrizio Entrance Ticket - Orvieto, Italy

Duration: 60 to 90 mins
Location: Orvieto, Italy

From USD
$5.89

You may wonder: what do Saint Patrick and Orvieto have in common? Very little or nothing and in fact this amazing masterpiece of hydraulic engineering was originally named Pozzo della Rocca (the fortress well), as it is close to the Albornoz fortress. It was later named after Saint Patrick because it was probably used as a Purgatory of Saint Patrick, in the second half of the eighteenth century, in a way similar to the underground cave where the famous Irish Saint used to retire and pray and where the unbelieving who ventured to the bottom of the cave would gain remission of sins and access to heaven.

Its construction was commissioned to Antonio da Sangallo the Younger in 1527, at the behest of Pope Clement VII, approximately at the same time when the Pozzo della Cava underwent restoration on the opposite side of the cliff, in order to ensure water supply, should the city be under siege. Completed in 1537 under Pope Paul III (born Farnese), given its size and the accurate project layout, the well shows its ambition to be remembered as a daring and majestic enterprise.

It is a work of skilled engineering, that was preceded by hydrogeological research in order to identify the most suitable site to reach the clayey layer of the springs and tile part of the walls with bricks to improve their sealing properties ... More info ›

It is a work of skilled engineering, that was preceded by hydrogeological research in order to identify the most suitable site to reach the clayey layer of the springs and tile part of the walls with bricks to improve their sealing properties. The cylindrical hole is enormous as it is 54 metres deep, and has a diameter of 13 metres; the architectural solution of a double helicoidal staircase is very interesting: It allowed the pack animals that carried water to travel undisturbed on two one-way staircases one up and one down 248 steps; the 72 large windows that filter light and let it play with the various tones of the stone wall are particularly evocative.From the outside, the well appears as a wide and low cylindrical building decorated with Farnesian lilies, showing two openings diametrically opposite to each other, one for people to go down, the other for them to go back up, with the background of the hills surrounding Orvieto’s cliff.Venture down its greenish depths, take lots of pictures to catch all the perspective effects and light effects, do not miss the chance to listen to the echo of your own voice as it bounces off the walls. Go on and once you reach the bottom of the well, throw a coin into the water, to make sure you will be back, and happy, in Orvieto some day.

ASSISI TREASURES AND ST FRANCIS WOOD

ASSISI TREASURES AND ST FRANCIS WOOD - Assisi, Italy

Duration: 4 to 5 hrs
Location: Assisi, Italy

From USD
$61.26

Assisi  - 3/4 hours - Walking through olive trees and river.
An intact piece of the Umbrian Countryside a place of harmony and silence at the foot of the great Basilica of St Francis of Assisi; a walk through this landscape becomes an inner journey - one that inspired Michelangelo Pistoletto to create a stunning work of land art.
This is a woodland under Fai protection.
Through a gateway in the wall surrounding the square of the Basilica Superiore in Assisi you enter in a narrow path that leads to a wide  valley floor, at the foot of the city centre.  This is no  ordinary excursion; rather, it is an ongoing, peaceful discovery, a new form of pilgrimage into history and into the sacred, through 64 hectares of nature, amid wooded tracts, cultivated fileds, walls of pink stone, clearings and olive groves - a 64 hectare plot that years of neglect had reduced to a dumping ground, but which FAI has now salvaged in its entierity.

Meeting point with the guide at 10.00 am at Basilica Superiore di San Francesco in Assisi.
Starting of walking tour .
Making your way now into the woodland, surrounded by hornbearn , juniper, maple and downy oak, you come first to the Bed of RiverTescio and, next to it, you can see the evidence of a microcosm inhabited by Benedictine nuns in the 13th and 14th centuries: a convent ( now home to the FAI information point) ; the Romanesque church of Santa Croce; a mill that was operational until the early 20th century ( now a Trattoria serving meals to visitors ); the remain of hospital that treated the diseased and  passing pilgrims; and an ancient 14th - century tower erected to defend and early factory.
Climbing to the top of the tower  is worth the effort, since it will allow you to admire fully the "third Paradise" a piece of land art by renowned artist MIchelangelo Pistoletto , which takes the form of 121 olive trees arranged in a double row to form three large, tangential circles ( of which the central one is the largest) , and featuring a 12- meter - high pole to symbolize the union between heaven and earth. You are invited to make your way around the serpentine path between  the rows, becoming in the process a part of this work, which encourages you to reflect on the potential for peaceful co-existence between mankind and nature, here symbolized by the third sphere - the third paradise - of the title.
