Description

Tours from Florence to Assisi, Cortona and Perugia

Get away from the crowded streets of Florence and explore the architecture, history, and art of religious sites in regions of Tuscany and Umbria. Our exploratory tours from Florence offer just that, taking you across spectacular landscapes, medieval hilltop towns, and Etruscan ruins.


The day trip will start with a visit to Cortona, a quaint hilltop town boasting gothic architectural treasures as well as romantic ambiance. The views of the surrounding hills and valleys from this town are simply breathtaking. No wonder Cortona became the setting of the famous Hollywood movie, Under the Tuscan Sun.


Next on our itinerary, is the birthplace of San Francesco (St Francis), Assisi. Like Cortona, Assisi also sits on a hilltop overlooking a picturesque valley surrounded by vineyards. Our professional guide will lead you through its narrow streets and alleys, explaining the history and events that shaped it. We will also drop by the Basilica of San Francesco Assisi displaying frescos of his life and Santa Chiara church. Once the guided walking tour is over, you will have free time to explore a bit on your own.


Finally, the day trip culminates with visiting Perugia. There, you can simply wander around and take in the atmosphere. On a self-guided Perugia tour, you can discover hidden springs and fountains, beautiful panoramas, Etruscan ruins, and beautiful gardens!

Highlights

It would a waste to spend your whole Tuscany vacations confined to a single city, no matter how amazing. Our Tuscany tours from Florence give you an excellent opportunity to discover more about the region. Furthermore, we help you visit places normally overlooked by tourist crowds. How many travelers can say they walked through the streets featured in the movie Under the Tuscan Sun?


Secondly, our aim is to make your trip not only interesting but also completely hassle-free. Coming along on our day trips from Florence, there is no need to worry about train connections, or losing your way. With us, you travel in a convenient air-conditioned minibus accompanied by the reassuring leadership of an experienced guide!

History Sneak Peek

Assisi, like all of the Tuscan settlements, used to be a municipium of the Roman Empire. Though, after the fall of the empire (before the political situation settled), the town suffered several devastating barbarian invasions.


Regardless, around the 11th century, Assisi experienced an enthusiastic flourishment of the religious spirit. This was mainly due to the rise of the middle class and wealthy merchants. (Saint) Francis was born into this prosperous period. His young life was marked by surplus and luxury. However, after witnessing the suffering of the sick and poor, he committed himself to a life of absolute poverty. His commitment was so unwavering, he inspired many to follow him which led to the establishment of the Franciscan Order.


There is much more to discover and see. If you are interested to explore Tuscany beyond the obvious book our tours from Florence today!
