This is a beautiful walk through woods. They ask an offering of 2euro per person. In the beginning there are 2 wonderful statues to inspire peace among people of all religions...these are beautiful. You then walk through the woods on a solid gravel/dirt path. This...More

It's a little-known fact that visitors to the Shrine of St. Francis can access the woods he and his companions roamed. Although it can be a physically demanding hike, it is a wonderful way to relax and process the experience of visiting Assisi.

This huge basilica occupying one end of the Umbrian town of Assisi, is on at least three levels. It is a massive structure, and it is just amazing. It is incredibly ornate, which, somehow, we feel Saint Francis might not have appreciated, but here it...More

Wonderful and peaceful part of Assisi. Away from the tourists. Walk both paths. Great experience. Have lunch at the Molino.

Entry is via a gate beyond the Piazza of San Francesco Basilica. At the beginning of the trail is a series of quirky, fascinating sculptures. The trail is shady and not too strenuous. If you go during the hotter months it would be wise to...More

Dear happytraveller575, we are very sorry that you didn’t feel sure and comfortable following our paths. Probably they were particularly unpleasant and slippery because of bad weather...we normally suggest comfortable shoes telling visitors that the path goes up and down the hills through the woods....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.
