The Fascia Olivata is a unique heritage, the result of the combined work of nature and man over the centuries. A real cultural landscape, made of olive trees and villages of inestimable beauty: Assisi, Spello, Trevi, Foligno, Campello and Spoleto.
A three-day itinerary to discover a piedmont area, cultivated since Etruscan times and strongly linked to St. Francis who made the olive tree the universal symbol of peace.
Arrival in Assisi, the Franciscan place par excellence, the must-see is the visit to the Basilicas of St. Francis, which preserve the remains of the saint and the incredible works of Giotto. From the centre of the village there is a route of about 10 km that reaches the Hermitage of the Prisons on the top of Mount Subasio, a place of meditation of the Saint that offers a poignant view of the Umbrian valley.
