Stage 12° Valfabbrica - Assisi

"Stile"

… and, finally, you are at the last stage of the Cammino! What a satisfaction! Follow the indications of the Franciscan Path for 16 km. An early morning start is suggested, so you can arrive in Assisi at midday. You will have the time to go into the Franciscan Basilicas (the upper one and the inferior one) and to enjoy the peaceful town: you will breath Francis’s essentiality!
Leave Valfabbrica, following  the indications to San Nicolò. Abandon the asphalt road in Pioppo, taking an uphill shady path on the right, along a ditch. At last, Assisi is visible from the top of the hill, pass a cemetery and, at the fork, turn right (if you turn left, you can visit the beautiful village of  Pieve of San Nicolò). Go down till the fork, turn left along the winding path going towards Torre Zampa. Go down towards the bridge “Ponte Santa Croce” and cross the next bridge “Ponte dei Galli”. Go up and enter Assisi through the gate “Porta San Giacomo”. Now there is a smooth road, quickly going down towards the great Papal Basilica where Francis, Our Brother in Christ, is waiting for us.
Walking time: 4 hrs 30 mins - 5 hrs.

WELCOME   TO    ASSISI!

MAY THE SPIRIT OF FRANCIS AND ANTHONY

ENLIGHTEN  AND GUIDE  YOUR  “CAMMINO”  FOREVER!
