ASSISI & COUNTRY LUNCH

 Highlights

 -         Saint Frances and Saint Clare the Gentle Saints: Assisi is the home to two of the most famous and important religious orders in the world: the Franciscan Religious Order and the Poor Sisters or Order of the Poor Clares.

-         The Retreat of St. Frances: Nestled high above Assisi, the Hermitage provided St. Frances with the solitude he required to meditate and think.  Even today the tranquility of the hills and trees provides the traveler with the same escape.

-         Organic Lunch: With everything you eat or drink grown or produced on the farm,
you can expect nothing but the freshest lunch in Umbria.

 

Itinerary

Departing il Borgo Passignano at 9 am we travel to Assisi.  A walking tour through this medieval town will bring you first to the Church of Saint Clare and then to the Basilica of Saint Frances.  You will have time to explore this historic and beautiful city and discover many of its hidden treasure. 
For lunch we continue out of Assisi and on up into the peaceful remote hills behind Assisi.  Gravel roads through spectacular country scenery bring us to the tranquil La Taovl dei Cavalieri , where a very special lunch will be served. 
The chefs choose simple and tasteful recipes using only the organically grown vegetables, free ranged raised, pigs, sheep and cows and the fresh herbs grown and raised on the property. Everything here is homemade with natural ingredients, from cakes and bread to pasta.  Even the beer is homemade and brewed in three ways to compliment each course. 
After lunch we will visit the Monastero di San Biagio.  Although no longer a working monastery, the solitude and inspiration of the past has permeated the 2000 year old stone and wood and today’s visitor can still feel the energy of the past.
Our final stop of the day is the retreat of Saint Frances, The Hermitage, nestled in the hills high above Assisi. This a special place of solitude and peace.

 Return to il Borgo between 5 and 6 pm.

 Cost: EUR120  per person and includes transportation and guide. Cost of lunch is extra.
