TERNI to  ASSISI

Description

This memorable journey will take you into Umbria, the green heart of Italy. Nature abounds in its verdant mountains, deep valleys and gushing rivers.  Here, man settled many centuries ago and left his mark by building charming towns and cultivating the lands, much unchanged today.  The area exudes with art and history; skillful hands craft exceptional gifts from nature such as olive oil, wine, cheese, and truffles.  Stepping out of the door will give us the feeling of entering a postcard, one we can smell, touch and enjoy with all our senses!

Our journey culminates at the hill town of Assisi, birth and final resting place of St. Francis.  A Saint of amazing character admired and respected by people of many cultures and religions, Saint Francis is known not only for his miracles but most of all for his humanity, his joy and his love for people and life. To add to his talents, he was also a fine literate and a poet. Our paths will lead to the places where he grew up, lived and was inspired, throughout many significant moments of his life. We will follow his steps and learn his story through the art and literature that was dedicated to him or written by him.

Come experience nature, cuisine, history, poetry, music, and traditions on this unique journey as we walk through the life of Saint Francis of Assisi.
