A day in Assisi, is the perfect way to breath some of the best Umbrian heritage!
Here are some of our ideas to make it unique:
A day in Assisi with the MONKS TOUR (to be booked in advance)
To experience really the best of Assisi: go first of all to the Information Office of Basilica of St. Francis Piazza S. Francesco, 2 06081 Assisi (PG).
To get there the best is to park at Giovanni Paolo II Parking (Parking A of Assisi).
Better to book the tour at leas a couple of day in advance:
Tel. (+39) 075.8190084
If the monks are all booked, don’t worry you can always rent the Audio Speaker at the Turisitic Office.
A day in Assisi experiencing a great Umbrian lunch
In Assisi we love those following restaurants:
La locanda del Cardinale – Why? On the way there is a Roman Villa rest to visit.
Where: Piazza Vescovado, 8, 06081 Assisi Perugia tel. +39 075 815245 http://www.lalocandadelcardinale.com
La Fortezza – Why? Food is really delicious
Where: vicolo della Fortezza 2.b, Assisi
Osteria La Piazzetta: – Why? Locals love to eat here! This Osteria has 50 years of history! The Chiocchetti family has offered refined ristorante service and often-inspired cuisine at trattoria prices.

After the city tour you may enjoy a wine tour with Saio ai Sassi, of Assisi.
