Still today, the monastic and military Templar Order is shrouded in mistery and scepticism. The places in which the knights lived are really fascinating. On this tour, you can visit and discover all the secrets of the ancient people. Walking slowly through the town will be the ideal way to dwell upon the small symbolic details which are typical of Templars.

Discovering the Pre-Roman Perugia is a fascinating trip, in which you can search for the traces of the first culture that explored the green Umbrian countryside and that laid the groundwork of the flourishing town that we know today. Finding the traces of Etruscan people will be easy. Walking through the town, you can discover the beauties and the varieties of the cultural goods that Etruscan people gave to the town.

Perugia is not just represented by the monumental fountain which is called “Fontana Maggiore” or by the Etruscan Arch but It is much more! It's a dynamic town in continued evolution. It's a reality in which the heart of the handicraft throbs. “Botteghe artigiane del centro storico” (Handicraft's worships of the historical old town) is an association which was eveloped to protect and show the culture of the handicraft. This is the ideal tour to know the new facet of Perugia.

Trasimeno Lake, which is surrounded by the wonderful Umbrian hills, is the ideal place to spend a holiday in a spirit of relax, wellbeing and friendly tourism and to discover past traditions. Trasimeno Lake and its islands represent a fundamental resource for the region because you can link art with sport, culture with entertainment and tradition with wellbeing.

The itinerary follows the places which represent a symbol in the life of the Saint. Going along these places, you can search for the silence and the peace that also Francis of Assisi found in mystical and contemplative places such as La Verna, where he “received” the stigmata; Cortona, one of the favourite places of the Saint for its loneliness and its strong symbolism; Rieti which represents the cradle of the first crib of Christianity.
