Then head to Mt. Subasio to explore the lowlands where St. Francis of Assisi lived and worked. Make a stop at the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, which is said to have been a favorite place of St. Francis’ for worship.
Enjoy a break to purchase some lunch and then set off to explore Assisi on your own. Pass the 1st-century Roman Temple of Minerva, the Chiesa Nuova, and the Basilica of Santa Chiara, dedicated to St. Clare, one of Francis’ first loyal followers.
