Meet your guide in front of the Basilica of St. Clare of Assisi and start your tour.
The church realized with the typical pink stone extracted from the quarry of the Subasio mountain, contains precious frescoes dating back to the period from the XIIth to the XIVth century.
In the chapel on the right, along the unique nave of St. Clare of Assisi, finishing in transept and polygonal apse, you can admire the Crucifix which, according to tradition, would have invited St. Francesco in the church of St. Damiano in order to reset up the Church.
After the visit, you will take a taxi (included) to reach the Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels.
Built on a grandiose scale, the Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli is the seventh largest Christian church. Its magnificence may be at odds with the simplicity preached by St Francis himself but the flocks of pilgrims coming to visit the primitive Porziuncola chapel and the Cappella del Transito called for a building that was able to accommodate the faithful.
After this visit, you will return in Assisi center to visit the magnificent St. Francis Basilica.
It is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Order of Friars Minor Conventual in Assisi, a town in the Umbria region in central Italy, where Saint Francis was born and died.
The Basilica of Saint Francis is world-famous for its 13th-14th century frescoes by the best painters of Italy at that time. Among those, the most famous is Giotto.
