FROM A RELIGIOUS PILGRIMAGE SITE TO A FAMOUS FILM SETTING- JOIN OUR TOUR THROUGH THE ROLLING GREEN HILLS OF TUSCANY AND UMBRIA AND DISCOVER THE ARTISTIC JEWELS OF ASSISI, CORTONA AND TRASIMENO LAKE.

Cortona, a delightful hilltop town of ancient origins, is bursting with architectural treasures and offering spectacular views over the surrounding landscape. You will immerse yourself in the setting of the famous movie “Under the Tuscan Sun”, which was filmed in Cortona in 2003.
Assisi, a city declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the most famous towns in Umbria in Italy. Land of San Francesco, the one who renounced all his earthly possessions to devote his life to helping the needy. It stands on the top of a hill overlooking a picturesque valley surrounded by gentle slopes and vineyards. Following San Francesco and Santa Chiara’s footsteps, you will be guided along winding streets and alleyways to the historical and artistic treasures of this Medieval town.
In the superb Basilica of San Francesco d’Assisi, gazing at Giotto’s frescoes of San Francesco’s life, you will learn the history of this important spiritual center. There will be some free time to stroll around and relax in the enchanting atmosphere of this Umbrian jewel. Then you will visit the Santa Maria degli Angeli Church, belonging to the Franciscan Order.
Trasimeno Lake is an your way, so you will stop there.
This splendid lake is located in the green heart of Umbria. The flora, made up of reeds and the beautiful white water lily, and the fauna with wild ducks, cormorants, the black kite, the kingfisher, form in this place a real natural paradise. The lake is richly surrounded by rolling hills, woods that alternate with sunflower and corn fields, vineyards and expanses of olive trees, where agriculture is traditionally widely practiced.

Among the municipalities of the Trasimeno, many overlook this lake directly, while others, not far away, are still affected by its charm and attraction.
