Explore Umbria directly from Rome!
You will visit Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis and explore the complex of the Basilica where you will find frescos of Giotto, Cimabue, and many others. Be sure not to miss the other beautiful places this almost untouched medieval town, built in pretty pink stone, has to offer. Locations such as the Tempio of Minerva, the Rocca Maggiore castle, and the many regional delicatessen products that originate from here.
You will have time in Perugia, a hilltop town located in the centre of the Umbria region, which is a perfect blend of natural and historic attractions. Walk up to the centre of the town and visit the unfinished cathedral where inside you will find a fresco of Raphael. Or fill your stomach with regional specialties, especially the tasty hazelnut-filled chocolate produced here.
