   BY AIR     3- 4 STARS

Our 8 day  pilgrimage  can start  and end Rome or Pisa. We visited the  medieval town of Assisi famed for being the birthplace of St. Francis.

We visit the world heritage site of St. Francis Hermitage, a peaceful spiritual place where St Francis spent of his time and the  San Damiano basilica, where St. Francis received his calling in 1205 and where St. Clare died in 1253. We explore the church of Santa Maria Degli Angeli and the Porziuncola, the Church of St Mary of the Angels and the Porziuncola restored by St Francis himself, he also established the order of the Friars minor here, later known as the Franciscans.  We have free time in Assisi  before departing for Florence where we are guided around the town and the  Maria  del Carmine and the Santa Maria Novella churches.

We stop at the  famous Santa Maria del Fiore best known as the Duomo, the cathedral with a unique Renaissance dome. The cathedral complex includes a breath taking marble campanile and an ancient baptistery which was built in the 4th or 5th century.  We explore the Uffizi Gallery.

Our last visit is to the renowned Leaning Tower of Pisa, the surprisingly crooked campanile of Pisa Cathedral.
