Last Thursday we were invited for a guided tour in Assisi. The ‘Guide in Umbria’ are organizing these tours this summer every Thursday morning, starting at 10.30 hours. The price is 7 euro (including 2 euro for the ear piece you get so everybody can hear the guide also in the church).
The tour is a real delight, both for children as well as adults. Easy to understand yet full of information you will not easily get from a guide book. It is also very interesting for children and the guides will make sure to point out more details that capture the imagination when children are present (surely also nice for adults).
After the Basilica di San Francesco we walked up into the centre, getting some beautiful views of Assisi along the way and lot’s of information about the town and life back then.
The tour ends in the centre, with lots of tips of what still to see and do.
The guided tour of Assisi will take place every Thursday morning from the beginning of June to the end of August. The price is 7 euro for adults and 2 for children (children only pay for use of the ear piece radio transmitter). It begins at 10.30 hour and you meet at the Basilica ‘inferiore’ (the lower church).
