Umbria - 8 Day Self Guided Walk

Map Image

Journey into the heart of Tuscany and Umbria, a provincial paradise that will tempt, tantalise and delight you. From the burnt hues of woodlands to rows of green vines snaking their way across the hills, this walking tour not only captures Italian rural life but provides a fascinating historical insight into the life of St Francis. Stroll down quiet lanes edged by ancient walls and explore the rich historical centres of Citta di
Castello, Anghiari and Assisi. And of course enjoy the mouth-watering food and wine which comes as naturally as the landscape itself.

Itinerary

Day 1 Chiusi della Verna

If arriving early, a visit to the Monastery of La Verna - where St Francis is believed to have received the stigmata - is a must.

Day 2 Caprese Michelangelo

The walking adventure begins along an undulating footpath into the Alpe di Catenaia.

Day 3 Anghiari

Take a gentle downhill trail, through tiny villages, to the stunning medieval centre of Anghiari. Framed by ancient stone walls, this enchanting town has inspired many artists, including Leonardo Da Vinci.

Day 4 Sansepolcro

Set off on a leisurely walk in the countryside surrounding Anghiari before transferring to Sansepolcro. Here, there’s the chance to marvel at remarkable Renaissance art at the Civic Museum, or to perhaps try the local speciality, Buitoni pasta.

Day 5 Citta di Castello

Enjoy an energetic hike over the fertile plains of the Upper Tiber Valley into Umbria. Explore the impressive medieval Palazzo Comunale or admire the vista from Torre Comunale.

Days 6-8 Assisi

Walk along hillsides dotted with rustic farmhouses on the way to Assisi. See the World Heritage-listed Church of St Francis rise up from the Piazza Inferiore di San Francesco. Embrace ‘la dolce vita’ and kick back by the hotel pool or perhaps sip vino on the terrace. Stroll through olive groves, sprawling vineyards and forests on explorations of Assisi and its intoxicating surrounds. Visit the cavernous Hermitage of the Carceri on the fringe of Monte Subasio. Embark on a final journey to the ancient walled city of Spello, where more than two dozen medieval churches wait to be explored.
