The visit, between art and spirituality, starts from the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli which houses the "Porziuncola", the place where St. Francis died: it remained abandoned for a long time, it was restored by Francis himself on his return to Assisi at the end of 1207. The tour continues to the centre where we will admire the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi with the tomb of the Saint and the splendid frescoes by Giotto and his school. Walking through the alleys we will reach the Church of S. Chiara with the relics of the Saint and the wooden crucifix which, according to tradition, spoke to Saint Francis. Free lunch. In the afternoon, possibility to participate in an excursion (optional and not included) to San Damiano and the Eremo delle Carceri, places of extraordinary beauty, where St. Francis and his friars meet in prayer and meditation.
