Visit Assisi in One, Two, or Three Days: Itineraries and Tips

Though I live only about six minutes from the historic center of Assisi, I find that I don’t write about my hometown very much. I tend to explore (and share) Umbria’s less famous villages and countryside, but there is no doubt that Saint Francis’ birthplace is one of the most beautiful spots in Umbria, if not all of Italy.

So I finally sat down and put together three itineraries: one, two, and three days of discovery of the picturesque, the poignant, and the–uh, another p word isn’t coming to me–town and environs. Take a look and plan your visit:

One Day in Assisi: A Complete Itinerary

This itinerary is a greatest hits compilation to help you discover Assisi’s most beautiful and iconic historical monuments and spiritual sites. Follow the directions to get a taste of the best of this unique town, and leave wanting to come back for more!

Two Days in Assisi: A Complete Itinerary

This itinerary will help you discover Assisi beyond the Basilica and historic center, including some of the more evocative Franciscan sites in the quiet countryside outside of town. Follow the directions to see and experience some of Assisi’s most famous monuments and most spiritual corners.

Three Days in Assisi: A Complete Itinerary

This itinerary will help you discover Assisi beyond the Basilica; use it to dodge the crowds of pilgrims which can flood the town in high season and find the quiet, picturesque backstreets, small trattorias where the locals eat, and off the beaten track gems (many of which you will have virtually to yourself). Follow the directions and know that you will leave after three days having seen and experienced the very best of this special place.
