Starting in the St Frances basilica, this walk (operated by FAI the Italian National Trust) takes you down a track with a series of fairly steep sections down to the river valley and the St. Croce church. You go for the cooling and varied walk,...More

This was the highlight of my day in Assisi. We didn't know what we were getting ourselves into and we weren't fully prepared to hike 5km, but it was 100% worth the effort. The peace of the hike, taking us through the old pathway to...More

If you want to take a walk, this is a nice trail, but the Bosco di San Francesco is simply not worth the effort if that is the objective. An undistinguished building with a undistinguished church.

The trail through the Bosco is downhill to the bottom of the valley. Good shoes required and a bit of stamina, but it's not hard. We walked it at the end of May; there were still a few blossoms here and there. There's a restaurant...More

the main walk leading to the Cathedral lasts 40 min one way, mainly in the shadow. The walk towards the "terzo paradiso" masterpiece lasts 20 min.
