The real Italy, far away from the modern highways and large cities, where small ancient villages are waiting to be discovered in the heart of the Umbrian countryside. Departing Rome, we drive through the Tiber Valleys and, heading north, reach Orvieto, a small town of Etruscan origin to admire the beautiful 14th-century cathedral, a triumph of Gothic-Romanesque architecture. We continue traveling through the green Umbrian hills, covered with olive trees and vineyards, crossing even a small area of Tuscany, driving on the border between the two regions. We are in the lands of the great DOC wines: Orvieto, Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Nobile di Montepulciano. Lunch, based on traditional Italian cuisine, will be in a lovely farmhouse in the small village called Castiglione del Lago, not so far away from the famous Trasimeno Lake, the 4th largest lake in Italy, situated between Umbria and Tuscany. In the early afternoon, after having skirted the shores of Trasimeno Lake, we arrive in Assisi and with our local guide, begin a walking tour  through the alleys of the town that rises at the foot of Mount Subasio. We will see the Church of Santa Chiara, the place where San Francesco was born and the house where he lived the first years of his life, the Piazza del Comune with the Palazzo del Popolo, the Roman Temple dedicated to Minerva, and the Palazzo Comunale. Near the ancient walls of the town, there is the Basilica of San Francesco, with its magnificent frescoes painted between the 12th and 14th centuries. Following the guided tour, enjoy some free time to linger in the church or stroll through the alleys lined with souvenir shops before returning to Rome.  This tour requires a minimum of 13 participants & lasts approximately 12 hours.
