Our tour begins in Assisi and visits the location where Francis was born and where he renounced his worldly possessions and donned the habit of the Franciscans, still in use today. Our tour ends at La Verna, a sacred place in Christian culture.

We will follow the path Francis followed on that first journey, trekking through the stunning Umbrian countryside, exploring its mountains and valleys. As Francis did, we will participate in the silence that the 4 monasteries we will visit, inspire. These mountains, which are the boundary between the regions of Umbria and the Marche, are still alive with tales of ancient legends and living histories that will be shared with you.

To keep our feet on the ground, we will share delicious food and excellent local wine together with the inhabitants of the small villages we pass along the way. Saint Francis communicated with the animals and we too will have an opportunity to observe and perhaps ‘parlare’ with deer, foxes, hawks etc. that live in the Foreste Casentinesi. The wild forests of the Alpe Della Luna resound with the sights and sounds of undisturbed wildlife there for our viewing.

This is a 10 day tour , while a shorter version (4 days and 3 nights) departs from the small town of Sansepolcro (where you can see the paintings of Piero della Francesca) to La Verna, covering the core of the tour’s natural beauty and cultural importance.
