Perugia is one of the popular Italian cities of art, with a beautiful square in which you can admire real architectural jewels like the superb Palazzo dei Priori (1293-1443) and the splendid Cathedral (1345) placed beside the Loggia (1423), and one of the masterpieces of sculpture with an invaluable artistic value (13th century), the elegant Fontana Maggiore (1275).

In this place, even Santa Chiara began her monastic life. Here you can also see the "rosebush without thorns", which continues to grow only in this magic place and that, according to a legend, originated from the contact of the Saint with a thorny bush

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

ASSISI TREASURES AND ST FRANCIS WOOD

ASSISI TREASURES AND ST FRANCIS WOOD - Assisi, Italy

Duration: 4 to 5 hours
Location: Assisi, Italy

From USD
$92.15

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.

2 hours of relaxing trip by coach and horse to discover the philosophy behind organic cultivation and the vineyards “of geese and horses” (one goose revolution project itmeans we wanted to respect the environment, and combine the love we have for our work with quality production. As a result, we decided to experiment viticulture which has a low impact on the environment. We now have 4 hectares of vineyard where no machines are used, and almost everything is carried out with the help of animals. In 2009 we had the idea of introducing draught horses, because their treading the ground between the vines greatly reduces compacting of the soil compared with tractors, which inevitably destroy the soil structure and reduce its fertility.)
Visit of the winery and wine tasting min. 5 wines  with a board of locally produced cheese and salame.
An expert will be at your disposal for all the time.

Enjoy a full-day excursion from Rome to the Umbrian town of Assisi. Admire the large Basilica of St. Francis and its crypt. Marvel at the work of Italian masters like the Lorenzetti brothers and Simone Martini, and stained glass windows by Giovanni di Bonino and Puccio Capanna. Especially noteworthy are the masterpiece frescoes by Giotto and Cimabue. Visit the monastery house and its remarkable treasures, including rare manuscripts, paintings, reliquaries, tapestries, vestments, and frontals.

See the Tomb of St. Francis in the crypt of the Basilica of St. Francis. The saint's remains in their stone container were excavated between 1818-1824, and his tomb was rebuilt and restored in the late 1920s. Above the altar, in the space of the ancient tomb, you can see the simple stone container enclosed by iron bars in two grids surrounded by four rough walls. The body of St. Francis still lies inside this container. In the corner niches lie the remains of four companions of St. Francis: Rufino, Angelo, Masseo, and Leone. Above is a lamp in bronze and alabaster, offered by the Regions of Italy in 1939 to the "patron saint of the Nation Primary."
St. Francis died next to the Porziuncola, the modest chapel where his church had begun, on October 3, 1226. The next day, his body was brought back into Assisi for his followers to kiss the stigmata.
In 1228, Brother Elias (the successor to the command of the Order) had received the gift of a plot of land outside of the western gate of Assisi. It was on a steep rise of Mount Subasio where they hanged criminals, and therefore he called it the Hill of Hell. On that cursed place they determined to build a very large church that would welcome the body of the great saint (he became a saint in 1228). The pope came to the Hill of Hell to bless the first stone, and work began on the basilica.
The saint's remains were interred in 1230 in the crypt below the Lower Basilica, but the exact location of his tomb was secret to keep Saracen invaders from raiding the tomb. The tomb was only re-discovered in 1818, when excavations began.
