Assisi is a small medieval town with cobblestone streets. It holds historical, artistic and religious significance and it’s famous for being the birthplace of St. Francis. Our 5 day pilgrimage takes us to the world heritage site of St. Francis Hermitage, a peaceful place where St Francis spent much time in isolation and prayer.

We visit the San Damiano basilica, where it all began in Assisi  the place where St. Francis received his calling in 1205 and where St. Clare died in 1253, it is located in a beautiful setting outside the walls of Assisi. We spend the a day in Florence with a guided tour in the morning around the Maria  del Carmine and the Santa Maria Novella churches and the afternoon at leisure exploring Florence.

Our last visit to the church of Santa Maria Degli Angeli and the Porziuncola, the Church of St Mary of the Angels and the chapel, believed to be the place of St Francis’ death. The Porziuncola is a chapel restored by St Francis himself. He also established the order of the Friars minor here, later known as the Franciscans
