An absolute meta to tour in Umbria, is the visit to Assisi. The starting point for the visit of the city which is a mere 30 km from the Castle of Baccaresca is certainly the impressive Basilica of San Francesco, built in the XIII century and is composed of two parts, the Lower Church where the relics of the Saint are preserved and the Upper Church, covered with frescoes that narrate episodes of the Old and New Testament, probably by Giotto, as in the lower walls.
Continuing your tour we suggest you take Via San Francesco that will bring you to the Piazza del Comune, around which stands out the Temple of Minerva, dating back to the I century B.C. From here it is then possible to reach other places linked to the holy, as the new church, made in '600s on the birthplace of S. Francesco, the Oratory of S. Francesco ‘piccolino’, in which according to legend is where the Saint was born and the Basilica of S. Claire, where the relics of the Saint are preserved. Don’t forget to visit the Cathedral of S. Rufino, bishop martyr and patron saint of Assisi, Eremo delle Carceri and the Porziuncola in S. Maria Degli Angeli and if one has time we advise you to admire the panorama from the Rocca Maggiore.
