Our self-guided Umbria walking tour (an easier walk than our more challenging self-guided Umbria hike) takes you from the fascinating medieval town of Spoleto to Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis. Along the way, you pass through the villages of Montefalco, famous for its sagrentino red wine and Bevagna, a spa town since Roman times. Near Assisi your walks include some of the sites special to St. Francis. And throughout the tour, we provide you with all the tools you need to help you put your spirit of adventure into action.
