The day starts with a tour of the city and museum, and we will spend the night in town.
The next day, after breakfast at the hotel, we will take a bus to Pieve de’ Saddi, where before we leave we can visit the fifth-century church for which the town is named. From here we will take a trail (average difficulty) to Pietralunga (11 km). At Pietralunga we will enjoy dinner with a tasting session of typical products at a holiday farm, where we will spend the night.
The following day, after breakfast we will start on the second leg of our journey to Loreto Basso (15 km). From here, we will take a bus to Gubbio and tour the city. Return to the hotel, dinner, and overnight stay.
After an early breakfast, departure by bus for Valfabbrica, for the last leg that will take us to Assisi (15 km). Here we can visit the Basilica of St Francis, the Bosco Sacro, the Basilica of St Clare and all the other marvellous places that were part of St Francis’s life.
