At Balloon Adventures Italy we are passionate about showing you our wonderful Assisi and we welcome travellers from all over for a truly once in a life time experience. You should not only consider seeing Assisi from our hot air balloon rides, but also take some time to visit this medieval city near Tuscany.
When visiting Assisi, in the region of Umbria, the first place that should be seen is the Basilica Papale di San Francesco and its monastery. Built in the 13th Century, it dominates the landscape with its majestic colonnades. In the upper cathedral and in the lower church you can admire the grandiose frescos by Giotto and many other medieval painters.
Other things to do in Assisi are: visiting the Basilica di Santa Chiara, the Cattedrale di San Rufino, the Eremo delle Carceri (a hermitage where St. Francis used to pray). In the valley, there is Santa Maria degli Angeli with its imposing cathedral.
Our hot air balloon ride often ends in the vicinity of the Cathedral. For nature-lovers, there are many hiking routes on Mount Subasio and a lovely area, accessible on foot from Assisi, called Bosco di San Francesco (St Francis’Forest) where St Francis said to have walked.
