Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Itinerary Focus

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.
Basic - 2 star You'll stay in no-frills, but clean and comfortable, hotels or guesthouses. A 'Basic' trip might also involve a few nights of camping.
Value - 3 star Mid-range budget with accommodations ranging from comfortable lodges, guesthouses, and homestays to three star hotels.
Premium - 4 star 3 to 4 star western hotel equivalents. While not all lodging will be 'luxury' they will be quite comfortable by western standards.
Luxury - 5 star The highest level of comfort and service. All accomodations are in four or five star hotels, boutique lodges or high-end homestays.

We decided to trust Story to deliver one of our bucket list trips. THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINT! The tour through Venice, Florence, Cortona, and Rome exceeded our expectations. Absolutely everything was FIRST CLASS. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. We gave it 5 stars only because there aren’t 6. The published itinerary was delivered in spades with special additions, sometimes twice a day. We never touched luggage, as it was moved for us from location to location. We never had to deal with tickets for transportation or museums. The local, private guides were super. The included dinners and wine were superb. This is a no driving, hassle free tour. We are planning to take another Story Small Group tour.

AND, as a special treat, the owner of the company was our tour captain. We tried several things that may be included in future itineraries. In the course of 9 days nothing flustered him. Everything was taken in stride, dealt with and resolved quickly. Nothing interfered with his fantastic service to his guests. We were not customers in any sense of the word. There was never a hint that Story was trying to watch the budget.

For those of you reading this and trying to decide, there are some things you need to consider. (When you have questions, call. You'll find that the Story help line is very knowledgeable and helpful.)

Small group - There were 15 people on our tour (16 is maximum). The tour caption had the time to get to know all of us. We saw lots of groups that appeared to be 40-50 people! You get to decide which is best for you. The smaller group = higher cost. We thought that it was easily worth it.

Walking - There is a lot of walking on this tour. There is always the option to use a taxi to get from place to place (extra cost). Some of the people on the tour with us had apps to count steps. Most showed more than 10,000 at noon time! MANY of those steps are on stairs and rough/cobble stone streets. Many of the stairs are inside attractions - not between them – so they can’t be avoided. By the end of our nine days, some tour group members were opting out of some planned activities. Opinion: If you can't complete a three mile walk, over uneven terrain, at a three mph pace (that's faster than most people walk), comfortably; get in shape. You’ll never do a constant three mile walk, on the tour – but it’ll feel like it.

Weather - We had fantastic weather! Temperature in the mid/low 70's and two sprinkles in nine days. Mostly sunshine. A great time to go.

Crowds - On the other hand, it wasn't such a great time to go. The crowds of tourists were overwhelming, everywhere except Cortona. I.E.: Our private, skip-the-line guided tour of the Vatican was especially BAD. We waited in line for about an hour and then once inside, we were literally shoulder to shoulder for the remaining two - three hours. It was nearly impossible to enjoy/understand what we were seeing. We spent more time trying to keep in sync with the group than looking at the art. The Sistine Chapel was NOT worth the time it took to get there. This was not something that Story could control. If the Vatican is important to you, go some other time of the year! If you are there during the busy season, opt out. There are thousands of fantastic things to see in Rome that won't be busy.

Security - We had a tour guide point out a small group of gypsy/pick-pockets as we exited the Vatican and steered us around them. That was the only "issue" in nine days - not a big deal. But, we were reminded to be "vigilant" many times - especially around crowds.

Navigation - Venice, Florence and Rome are VERY difficult to get around. There are many streets/alleys that run in apparently random directions. The maps available through hotels/tourist agents are not in adequate detail. Consider a hand-held GPS navigation system MANDITORY. Our phone did not have cell connectivity, so we down loaded the Google map. It worked once. Be very careful that you have a navigation device that works! Download a local map and test, test, test in airplane mode (?) before you go.

Driving – If you are going to Italy and renting a car, during the busy season, Venice allows no cars, problem solved. Driving in Florence and ESPECIALLY Rome is crazy. You've been forewarned.

Hotels - As it says, the hotels are in the center of the city/attractions. For example: the hotel in Rome was 200 feet from the Pantheon! This means that some of the buildings are more than 1,500 years old. You'll get used to seeing corners that you'd think should be 90 degrees, but aren't. Be prepared to spend time learning how things work and how to find your room - it'll be different from hotel to hotel and what you are used to! WiFi worked good in each hotel, except Rome.

My wife and I enjoyed the feeling of being independent to do as we wished at our convenience, yet also knowing that the host family and Regional Coordinator were a phone call away if their help was required. Caterina de Felice the Regional Coordinator provided us with all the necessary information to have a safe and enjoyable experience in Umbria. Her instructions about the international road signs were very helpful and explicit and made for a safe driving experience in Italy. We loved that Umbria has yet to be discovered by many, mostly American, tourists. We did not have to compete for seating at a restaurant, stand in line at an attraction, or forgo sightseeing because there was no parking. Umbria was very scenic, literally unspoiled by tourism and commercialism, it was the way I imagined Italy to be perhaps one hundred years ago. Also, the area that we chose to live in gave me the opportunity to utilize my knowledge of the Italian language, since many people we encountered did not speak English.

We flew into Milan and toured the town on our own a few days. Then we took the train to Varenna on Lake Como to formally start our Rick Steves tour with our guide, Lisa Anderson. She was excellent; very organized, helpful to a fault, and took us to a lot of out-of-way places not on the itinerary. What I liked most was the mixture of planned activities and time our own own; a nice balance which I believe gave us a good feel for the people, culture, and historical places we toured throughout Italy. You can read any itinerary for this trip and learn about what you're going to see, but getting to know your traveling companions (there were 28 of us) well, share food (and a cold- achoo!) made it all the better. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who would really like to get a taste of Italy from Rome north. I had no interest in visiting Italy before, but would go back in a heartbeat. I especially enjoyed our time high up in a ski village in the Dolomite Mountains. Seeing the "big three" of Venice, Florence, and Rome was great, but I also enjoyed seeing Pisa and Assisi, and spending time in places I had never heard of before - Cinque Terre , Siena, and Orvieto. While I know you can't pick your tour hosts, I would give the highest marks to our guide Lisa, her assistant, Alex, and our bus driver extraordinaire, Adrian. They helped put an excellent adventure over the top. Kudos to you Rick Steve's! We'll book another one of your tours in the next few years.

We were visiting in Umbria and my husband found this tour. As it turned out, there were just four of us, so it was a nice small group. I'm not sure if her name was Michelle, but she was a terrific guide, married with kids and her husband is in the business too. Anyway, she was so knowledgeable and passionate about her city. Obviously very well educated about the history of the sites we saw. We've taken a number of tours all over the world and she ranked up at the top. It was easy to meet up. It was a hike and you end up at the other end of the city, away from where we met. But we had a delightful lunch mid-way back so it was not so bad. You do finish up near 1:30 so we had to hustle to get to lunch on time. I would not hesitate to recommend this guide and this tour. We would have missed out on so much if we had wandered around by ourselves.

My tour to Venice, Florence and Rome was ABSOLUTELY fantastic!!! Andrea and the Museum Tour Guides were excellent. They were not only knowledgeable about the subject matter of each tour, but also friendly and attentive to answering any and all questions. Andrea has a wonderful personality and went beyond the call of duty to make everyone happy and to even offer assistance to a disabled person throughout the tour. I was very happy with the stops between the major cities where we were able to visit Assissi, as well as have a wonderful lunch at a Olive Oil and Winery and a fantastic dinner in Tuscany. Additionally, the driver was friendly and very careful to get us to each and every destination safely. There are two things I would suggest...a much nicer hotel in Rome and a much longer tour and stay in Italy. I would have loved a twelve or fourteen day Italy stay. Thank you Smartours for these wonderful tours--this was my second one, first visiting China and just recently Italy. I am seriously contemplating Dubai/Abu Dhabi or Cuba. Keep it up Smartours! You are the best at world wide travel!!! Loretta Flanagan

Assisi Tours and Travel Guide

Assisi Attractions & Landmarks Guide

Assisi is a beautiful, classic Italian town, Assisi is picturesque at every point. From its perfect cobblestone streets, to the rolling hills of the Italian countryside that can be seen from any vantage point around the city, it is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of Italy’s busy tourist cities and get a better feel of the country itself.

Assisi Walking Tours

Assisi’s small size and tiny streets make going on a walking tour is one of the best ways to explore Assisi, especially if it is on your grand tour of Umbria. In the heart of Italy, Umbria has a rich medieval past, and evidence of this history can be seen in the medieval buildings and layout of the city.

These narrow paths and cobblestone streets can only be seen on foot, and your tour guide will take you through these passages and off the beaten path to explain Assisi’s fascinating history

On your walking tour of Assisi, as in other cities in Umbria, your guide will not only take you to famous landmarks, but will likely take you into a few Italian shops. Whether it’s a stop at a deli to taste a few regional delicacies, or brief visit to a local craftsman to see how they make their goods, a walking tour allows you to get close to the action and to the heart of the city. 

St. Francis Tours in Assisi

Assisi is one of the top places for Catholics on a pilgrimage in Italy, and this is for one reason: Saint Francis was born, raised, and died in the small town of Assisi. Francis is one of the most important saints in the Italian faith, the patron saint of animals and the natural environment, and starting a well known following of Franciscan Monks.

Francis himself encouraged living a life free of temptation, he himself enjoyed living in the wilderness, far from and without unnecessary material objects, so you may be surprised to find the basilica dedicated to him to be the largest and most ornate in all of Assisi. In fact, St. Francis’ Basilica is a World Heritage site, and an important example of Italian architecture taught in many art history classes.

The basilica is unique in another way: inside the church is another church. The first instruction Francis ever received from God had to do with the repairing a small wooden church, and this is what Francis did.

The church remained incredibly important to him, and throughout his life he urged his followers to never leave the place, and when he was on his deathbed, he asked to be brought back to it. This same 13th century church is now encompassed by the much larger basilica, forever preserved for Francis’s followers.

Festivals & Events in Assisi

Being a religiously Catholic community, any traveler to Assisi should expect stores to be closed on Sundays, as well as the main Christian holidays. With this being said, there are also several other interesting events and festivals that occur in Assisi and may be worth scheduling your travel around. Here are some of them:

  • Calendimaggio: This springtime ceremony is a joyous and well-known Assisi tradition. The entire town engages in a parade, dressed in medieval costumes. At the end of the day, which includes several street performances, a “Spring Madonna” is selected.
  • International Antiques Fair: This event draws international travelers and Italians from far and wide for one of the largest antique fairs in all of Europe. You can expect to find high quality, art, furniture, and other knick knacks for sale.
  • Pardon Festival: “Pardon Festivals” are common in many religious Catholic towns in Italy, though Assisi has one of the most famous. This feast, which occurs on August 2nd, attracts thousands of visitors and pilgrims. In the morning, all observing the ceremony attend to church to confess, and afterwards, the entire town gathers for a joyous and hearty feast.
  • Holy Week: This festival happens in the week before Easter, and is generally a happy time in Assisi. Theatre, concerts, and liturgies happen throughout the week, and cumultate with a parade on Good Friday (the day before Jesus was crucified, in Christian history).
  • St. Francis Festival: this festival is dedicated to the town’s patron Saint, who is known as the saint of animals and poverty. Pilgrims come to Assisi during this time, and there are many folk art and music festivals during the two days (October 3 & 4) of this festival.

Things to Know Before You Go

Weather in Assisi

Assisi is in Umbria, which is a region in central Italy and sometimes referred to as the “Heart of Italy.” In this region, temperature varies drastically depending on the season, with warm and humid summers, and cooler winters.

If you are looking to avoid rain, the driest months of the year are in July, August, and October. Even if it rains, be aware that it never snows in Assisi, even in the winter.

Here is what to generally expect when visiting Assisi, depending on the season: 

  • Summer: In summer, daily temperatures average around 80 degrees Fahrenheit, though be aware that temperatures can rise to the high 90’s in the heart of July.
  • Fall: During the autumn, temperatures are a little cooler, and generally in the mid 60’s (Fahrenheit).
  • Winter: Winter temperatures in Assisi are the most consistent, and typically fall at around 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Spring: The spring in Assisi is typically a little colder than the fall, with temperatures averaging in the mid 50’s.

Because Assisi's weather is never extreme, and because this tiny country city does not experience the massive influx of tourists that other Italian cities like Rome and Florence do during the summer, there is no guaranteed best time to visit Assisi.

Some travelers enjoy the winter and Christmas season in this joyous and religious town, though others travelers time their trips to Assisi with other holidays and festivals throughout the year for the same reason. If you want to save money, however, consider booking during the off-season for travel and during the spring and autumn months. 

How far is Assisi from Rome?

Assisi is just over a two hour drive from Rome, which makes this city popular on larger tours of Italy. If you are planning on booking separate tours in each city, there is also a convenient train that runs between the two -- this train takes about 3 hours, but is very affordable only costs 10 euros in each direction.

Assisi Wine Tours

The Umbria region of Italy is famous for its wine, particularly its love of the white Grechetto grape. Assisi is no exception to either of these trends, and there are multiple food and wine tours of Italy that include Assisi as a pit stop.

Besides its heavy use of Grechetto grapes, Assisi is also known for a wide diversity of red wines. Like other regions in Italy, there are also stringent production rules in the area that govern how wine is made, from the altitude it has to be grown at to the percentages of each type of grape that can be in the wines.

On a wine tour of Assisi, you will all of this information in more detail, as well as more about Assisi’s historic relationship with wine as a religious and devoutly Catholic city. You will likely also be able to visit a few different vineyards in the region to watch how they make wine. Finally, you will of course have the opportunity to sample various different wines from the area, and learn what to look for when tasting them.
