Highlights
  • Spend your afternoon in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Spoleto in Umbria
  • Visit the Basilica and Monastery of St. Rita of Cascia
  • See the Rocca Albornoziana complete with its 6 towers
Full description
Umbria is the hometown of famous saints St. Francis (the patron saint of Italy and founder of the Franciscan order), St. Clare (the founder of the order of St. Clare), and the equally famous St. Rita of Cascia. Born in Roccaporena in 1381, St. Rita was one of the most popular saints of the Catholic Church, with her related symbols being roses and figs. The Basilica was built in 1937 and consecrated in 1947, and the monastery where she lived for forty years was rebuilt in the 18th Century and houses the nuns of the Augustinian community.

In between your exploring of the history of Umbria, you will have free time for lunch in a typical restaurant, and you may also choose to utilize this time off for personal prayer. Your trip then continues to Spoleto, a gorgeous Middle Ages uphill town in which you will discover Etruscan and Roman Age buildings such as a theater and the amphitheater which are located in the upper village.

The Rocca Albornoziana houses 6 towers, a number of beautiful frescoes and the National Museum. The 14th century Ponte delle Torri, or "Bridge of Towers", is built on the remains of a Roman aqueduct, and stretches across a gorge towards the Rocca. At the conclusion of your day, you will be returned to Rome at approximately 7:00PM.
