Tour of Assisi: Inside the Basilica

dsc_3281.jpg ThumbnailSanta maria degli Angeli, one of the biggest churches in the Christian world, has its beauty not only in its 16th century architecture, but in the little church hosted inside it.

Wow!! A church within a church, this is certainly unique and what about the story of the little church...why is it so important?
These are some of the questions which will be answered in our tour that will continue on inside the Basilica of St. Francis in the historical and walled city of Assisi.

This Basilica, with its 3 levels, is a great building and far more than a church. At the same time, this is the tomb of one of the most important and beloved Saints of all times as well as the cradle of western art.

Some of the greatest painters of the Middle Ages, inspired by the life and words of Saint  Francis, worked here creating a breathtaking cycle of Frescos. Giotto, named the artist of the millennium, gave start to the Renaissance  and you will see and easily understand what we mean with that.  You have heard the name St. Francis…..and today you will leave this tour really understanding who he was.

Duration of the tour: 1,30
