What to expect

Visit one of the most famous churches of Italy with an expert local guide: learn about history and architecture of the Basilica of Saint Francis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Basilica of Saint Francis is a bi-level 13th century building, which preserves the tomb of Saint Francis of Assisi, one of the most beloved Saints in the world. This grandiose gorgeously embellished church is decorated with frescoes by Cimabue, Giotto, Simone Martini, Pietro Lorenzetti and other well-known Italian medieval painters.

You will start your visit from the lower floor, by entering the tomb of Saint Francis; then you will keep exploring the church in the altar area, where the frescoes about Jesus life are located. Get a glimpse of the friary cloister, before visiting the upper church, that will make you know Saint Francis life through the famous cycle of paintings decorating the church. This church is a powerful place for believers and art lovers, a focal point of both art and spirituality.
