Total peace and quiet at a stones throw from Assisi (4 km)! This distinctive home is a world away from the noise of every day life, all around you, you see nature. Or do I? Is that not the colonnade of the St. Franciscus basilica in the distance? Why yes it is! It takes no effort to go explore it up close, or better yet, go inside. This enormous 13th century basilica is divided into an upper and lower church, both filled with gorgeous frescos from among others, the famed master Giotto. In the lower part of the church you can descend to the crypt, where Saint Franciscus is buried.
The Path of Saint Franciscus is recommended for nature lovers. It runs from Assisi to Gubbio, straight across the green hills and along beautiful villages. You can hike the road or take a bike, even go on horseback. Relaxation is guaranteed because motor vehicles are not allowed!
For some variation you can visit Perugia (25 km). In this lively student town there are ample shopping opportunities, museums, but above all you can enjoy the atmosphere of the town with all the international students. You can also just stay home and enjoy the spectacular views! The lake of Trasimene, Todi and Gubbio (all within 55 km). Grocery shopping, post office, banks and restaurants in Assisi.
