Are you looking for things to do in Assisi Umbria? Balloon Adventures provides unforgettable hot air balloon rides in the central part of Italy.
When visiting Assisi, 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. Your 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.
It is time to enjoy Umbria Italy from a different perspective! There is no better way than from a hot air balloon to admire the birthplace of San Francesco and the surrounding medieval cities.
At Balloon Adventures Italy we are passionate about showing you our wonderful Assisi and we look forward to welcoming you for a truly once in a life time experience.
