    My wife and I so enjoyed the experience! Our guide was quite knowledgeable and we had fun interacting with her.

    Il borgo storico di Assisi è a dir poco spettacolare; per non parlare delle chiese. La basilica di San Francesco, poi, è il top.

  • 14-Nov-2021

    Assisi, dal punto di vista storico culturale, in particolare, per quanto attiene all'aspetto religioso, racchiude TUTTO, merita di essere visitata ed apprezzata, dalla popolazione planetaria. È il centro di tutto! Va sottolineato che: per la ristorazione è meglio attrezzarsi con il "panino al seguito" , soprattutto per chi va a fare turismo religioso con famiglia. I costi per la ristorazione sono esageratamente, lievitati. Salvo, che vengono confezionati con la benedizione dei Santi del posto!

    Abbiamo passeggiato un giorno intero a Spello. Che dire ogni vicolo è una scoperta. Bellissima. Il giorno dopo ad Assisi tralasciando l'aspetto religioso e la bellezza delle basiliche l'atmosfera natalizia era bellissima con negozietti dappertutto e tanta accoglienza. Bello

    Our guide Valentina has a remarkable command of the history of these structures and the incomparable artwork they contain. She was warm, clear and eager to tell the stories of the people who created them and those to whom they are dedicated. It was a wonderful day and even enough time, to get to know a little about each other.

    We enjoyed our afternoon with this friendly very informative host and tour guide, who took us all around in his own car. We went to Assisi, saw all the sites and Perugia. The tour was self directed and flexible.
