Discover divine calm and bird’s-eye views on St Francis’s favorite mountaintop.

On Mount Subasio’s ethereal high slopes, white Chianina cows and wild horses roam wide-open pastures under an endless blue sky. Far below glints Assisi’s basilica, where you recently stood awestruck before Giotto’s frescoes of St. Francis preaching to the birds. Now you’re walking in the saint’s footsteps, and your spirit soars. Just downhill is the hermitage where Francis often meditated, subsisting on roots and sleeping in caves. Thankfully, your prospects today are less austere. In fact, a sumptuous home-cooked lunch awaits in nearby Collepino. Bruschetta, grilled meats and veggies, local wine, and olive oil. The flavorful fare you’ve grown accustomed to on this walking tour through Tuscany and Umbria’s hills and vineyards. Central Italy’s beauty will stay with you forever—Siena’s seashell-shaped piazza, Pienza’s harmonious Renaissance architecture—but today’s greatest gift is the blessed sense of peace.

Highlights

  • With an expert guide, discover Giotto’s 28-part fresco, The Life of St. Francis, which graces the walls of Assisi’s iconic Basilica of St. Francis.
  • Savor an unforgettable meal of traditional cuisine as you peer through the glass bottom of a remarkable restaurant that sits atop excavated Roman ruins.
  • Trek a dramatic path through an isolated valley of wheat fields and olive groves to the 12th-century, Romanesque Abbey of Sant’Antimo.
  • Experience the architectural beauty of Siena’s famous Piazza del Campo (home to the world-renowned Palio horse race), as your local guide regales you with stories.

Itinerary

Fri, May 14 to Sun, May 23 - 2021

Show Itinerary:

Begin your adventure by departing from a convenient gateway city in the United States or Canada. Spend your first night aloft.

Upon your arrival at Florence’s Peretola (formerly known as Amerigo Vespucci) Airport, a representative holding a Country Walkers sign meets you as you exit the baggage claim area. A complimentary small-group transfer will be provided to Hotel de la Ville in Florence, approximately 30 minutes away. The remainder of the day is at your leisure (no meals included).

If you are going to be delayed meeting our transfer representative for more than 15 minutes due to delayed or lost luggage, please contact Allianz Global Assistance to advise of your delay and they will contact our transfer service on your behalf. Our drivers are generally able to wait for up to 45 minutes from the time your flight lands, after which you would be responsible for your own transfer.Please note: If you arrive early, and your hotel room is not available prior to the designated check-in time, you may store your luggage with the reception desk.

Country Walkers provides City Information including recommendations on what to see and do in Florence during your stay.

Accommodation: Hotel de la Ville, Florence

City tour of Siena; 2 hours, easy

Breakfast is included at your hotel. Your guide(s) meet you at 9:30 a.m. in the lobby of Hotel de la Ville, Piazza Antinori, 1, Florence. Your guide(s) will be wearing a Country Walkers shirt. Please be dressed for city walking. Comfortable walking shoes required. (Sneakers are acceptable.)

After meeting in Florence, you transfer to Siena. The week begins with a walking tour of the historical center of Siena, an atmospheric Tuscan city. With its mixture of Gothic and Romanesque architecture dramatically set on three hills, Siena rivals Florence not only in beauty but also in culture. Following a light lunch of Sienese specialties, you explore the world-famous Piazza del Campo, presided over by its impressive town hall and tower. The Campo is the setting of the celebrated Palio horse race. Your engaging local guide leads you to the Duomo, the town’s main cathedral, to view its striking marble façade.

Later, you transfer to San Quirico d’Orcia, one of the pilgrimage routes that connected northern Europe to Rome, and your home for the next three nights. An important stop during medieval times along the Via Francigena, San Quirico is a charming, walled, hilltop town surrounded by vineyards that produce three great Tuscan wines: Montepulciano, Brunello, and the Orcia DOC. Magnificent medieval architecture adorns its streets, and your boutique hotel is located just outside one of the town gates. A warm, wood-beamed restaurant in the heart of town welcomes you to dinner. Here, a glass of Brunello paired with a bistecca fiorentina (local grilled beef) is the perfect start to the week’s culinary delights.

Accommodation: Villa del Capitano, San Quirico d’Orcia
Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

6 miles, easy to moderate; optional 2-3 miles, easy to moderate

Today’s exploration begins on the outskirts of San Quirico. After an initial short drive to the village of Torrenieri, step onto a dirt lane that meanders along rolling terrain between the Orcia Valley and the Crete Senesi (Sienese hills) toward Pienza, the morning’s destination.

Lunch awaits at an old Tuscan farmhouse, where your hosts welcome you with an assortment of local pecorino (sheep’s milk cheese), cold cuts, and homemade preserves and pickles accompanied by their house wine. After lunch, you are driven a few minutes away to Pienza, the birthplace of Enea Silvio Piccolomini, elected Pope Pius II in 1458. Envisioning the creation of the “ideal Renaissance town,” Pius II had the village renamed and entirely redesigned by Florentine architect Bernardo Rossellino. The village’s restructuring came to a halt following Pius II’s death, and the only part of the urban plan that had been completed was the town center, Piazza Pio II. Here, the main monuments lie harmoniously along the town’s central axis, with the town hall opposite a 15th-century cathedral.

An optional afternoon walk departs from the tiny spa village of Bagno Vignoni, where you can soak your feet in the warm waters flowing out of the town’s picturesque main square. This pool is the only one in Italy that is, in fact, a thermal pool. After returning to the hotel in San Quirico, you have time to relax before another delicious dinner featuring local specialties.

Accommodation: Villa del Capitano, San Quirico d’Orcia
Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

4-7 miles, easy to moderate

Today you depart San Quirico and walk through gentle hills in the shade of old-growth woods, skirting vineyards where the famous Sangiovese Grosso grape is grown for Brunello wine. You might stop to visit an ancient Etruscan settlement, still under excavation. Then continue through farmland, ancient dwellings, wineries, and olive groves before making the dramatic descent to the isolated Romanesque Abbey of Sant’Antimo.

After a truly authentic lunch of pink risotto and wild boar stew at one of our favorite trattorias, you return to San Quirico. You have an independent afternoon of exploring or relaxing (or perhaps indulging in a spa treatment at your hotel’s nearby sister property). You may want to step out for a pre-dinner stroll and a visit to the Horti Leonini—a wonderful example of classic Italian-style gardens, built by Diomede Leoni in 1540. This evening, enjoy dinner on your own, with restaurant recommendations from your guides.

Accommodation: Villa del Capitano, San Quirico d’Orcia
Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

3 miles, easy; 3-4 miles, easy to moderate

This morning you bid farewell to southern Tuscany as your drive winds through the rolling hills and medieval hilltop villages of the Crete Senesi, descends on the plains surrounding Lake Trasimeno, and enters the central valley of Umbria, a region known as the “Green Heart of Italy.”

Your morning is devoted to an exploration of Assisi. This stunning town sits in a commanding position on the slopes of Mount Subasio and has retained its charming medieval qualities and strong associations with St. Francis. The intriguing history of Assisi’s city center and the Basilica of St. Francis come to life with interpretation from your guide. Afterward, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.

The afternoon offers several options. You may transfer to Spello, your home for the next three nights, to stroll its picturesque alleys or relax by the hotel pool. Alternatively, an easy walking option is offered—leading out of Assisi into the lush, surrounding countryside and olive groves all the way back to Spello. Dinner this evening is at an intimate restaurant, where you are welcomed with a glass of crisp Prosecco on a panoramic terrace overlooking the Umbrian plain.

Accommodation: Hotel La Bastiglia, Spello
Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

5-7 miles, easy to moderate

After breakfast, depart for Gubbio, the medieval masterpiece of Umbria that charms with its intimate alleys and surprisingly spacious panoramic piazza, flanked by the stunning palazzo comunale. Following a scenic drive, the morning walk’s destination is the Church of Saint Ubaldo, perched high on the mountainside overlooking Gubbio. The church is the endpoint of the annual “Race of the Ceri,” a colorful historical festival where locals race ceri (giant heavy wooden structures that resemble candlesticks). The walking route passes by limestone outcrops and a tiny chapel, then meanders through woods, along a creek, and up a narrow gorge. After visiting the church and admiring the three ceri contained within, enjoy a scenic funicular ride descending into town, where a lunch of regional specialties awaits. After lunch, you return to Spello, with an optional walk en route that traces ancient oak-lined farm roads leading all the way to the hotel. Your guides provide ideas for dinner on your own in town; many restaurant and trattoria menus offer chickpea soup drizzled with olive oil, bruschetta, or strangozzi, the regional square-shaped ribbon pasta (literally shoestring-like).

Accommodation: Hotel La Bastiglia, Spello
Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

5-9 miles, easy to moderate

After breakfast, you embark on a short transfer to the Natural Park of Mount Subasio, a protected area with serene paths meandering through open meadows and oak and pine woods. Mount Subasio is the sprawling mountain on whose flank Assisi is built. A haven of subtle beauty and spirituality, it was here that St. Francis preached to the birds as they gathered on tree branches. Hiking in the meadows along the summit of the mountain, you are likely to see grazing herds of sheep, white Chianina cows, and semi-wild horses before descending to lunch in the small, charming hamlet of Collepino. The waiting table is spread with an ample antipasto of assorted bruschetta, followed by grilled meats and vegetables.

After lunch, you may choose to return to Spello by van or descend on foot, continuing through olive groves and alongside an ancient Roman aqueduct. This aqueduct once brought drinking water into town along the eastern side of the mountain.

This evening’s farewell dinner is at an extraordinary venue in Assisi: a restaurant built on top of a glassed-in site of remarkable Roman ruins. You dine on the finest local cuisine and toast your week’s adventures with a glass from the restaurant’s world-class wine cellar.

Accommodation: Hotel La Bastiglia, Spello
Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After a leisurely breakfast, you depart Spello for Rome. Time and weather permitting, a brief stop en route in the walled medieval hill town of Spoleto may allow for a walk and view from the impressive Ponte delle Torri (Tower Bridge). You arrive early afternoon to Rome for your post-tour night. (Lunch and dinner are on your own.)

Country Walkers provides City Information including recommendations on what to see and do in Rome during your stay.
