Cortona + Perugia from Assisi

  • DRIVING  TOUR FROM ASSISI

We offer you a private customized driving tour of the main sights of Perugia and Cortona by our air conditioned car/minivan and our English speaking driver and licensed guide, departing from your hotel in Assisi.

From a religious pilgrimage site to a famous film setting: join our tour through the rolling green hills of Tuscany and Umbria and discover the artistic jewels of Perugia and Cortona.

Our first stop is Perugia, just half and hour drive from Assisi.

Called by Henry James, “city of the infinite view”, Perugia’s Etruscan glory lives on in the Etruscan city gate of the 3rd century B.C. – hidden away in the massive Papal fortress of the 16th century.

With the opportunity to stroll through the old town in search of ‘springs and fountains’, ‘beautiful views’, ‘Etruscan walls and doors’, ‘parks and gardens’ through trails that wind between the five historic districts of the city: Porta Sole, Porta Sant’Angelo, Porta Santa Susanna, Eburnea Gate and Porta San Pietro. The city, founded by the Etruscans, is rich in history and monuments, including La Fontana Maggiore, which is one of the main monuments in the city and a crucial example of medieval sculpture, the Etruscan Arch of Augustus, which is the largest monument among Etruscan remains, the gateway of the Etruscan walls, the Palazzo dei Priori and the Rocca Paolina.
