What to expect

Get introduced to the Italian Religious orders that went beyond the Orthodox Christian experience. Meet your private driver and depart towards the South of Tuscany and Umbria. Tour the breathtaking monasteries in Monte Oliveto Maggiore and Assisi, the native villages of these saints and breath in the Middle Ages. A nice wine and olive oil tasting will await you after the history.

While exploring the beautiful area of Southern Tuscany close to Siena, you will visit the Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore. It is situated in a beautiful position between typical forms of eroded soil and a forest of cypresses and oaks. The abbey was founded in 1313 by Sienese Bernardo Tolomei who retired in this isolated place, property of his family, after he converted to the Benedictine order. Some years later, he began the construction of the Abbey. The structure, as you see it today, has been completed during the following centuries.

Assisi was the birthplace of St. Francis, who founded the Franciscan religious order in the town in 1208, and St. Clare, the founder of the Poor Sisters. Nowadays, Assisi is a popular destination not only for religious tours, but also for the history that the city has witnessed during the centuries. The Basilica of San Francesco d’Assisi is the most important site to visit while in town.

At the end of the tour, sit back, relax and enjoy your 2.5-hour drive back to your hotel in Rome. You can expect to be back at your hotel at around 6.00 pm (depending on the local traffic).
