  • Based on our popular 8 night, Footsteps of St Francis Walk
  •   Discover Italy's 'Green Heart': deep lush forests, impressive limestone gorges, rare flora and fauna in the Monte Subasio Natural Park
  •   World-famous Assisi, jewel in the Umbrian crown; Spello, one of Italy's best preserved Mediaeval towns
  • Exceptionally friendly hotels with panoramic swimming pools
  • Superb regional cuisine: highly prized black truffles, the finest of olive oils, famous Sagrantino wines

This 6-night linear trip is a great mix of wonderfully scenic walking and historic hilltop towns. The walks follow a mix of paths and trails, partly on the St Francis Way, partly on the 'Sentiero degli Ulivi', the Olive Grove Trail. Along the way you pass the great Abbey at Sassovivo and wander the ruins of Campello Alto.

The walking is beautifully unhurried, it's a rural route brimming with rare flora and fauna, passing through olive groves dating back to Roman times. Stroll along pilgrimage trails through centuries-old forest and sacred woodland that has for years been tended and cared for by the Franciscan monks.

You stay in beautiful medieval towns: pretty Spello, which lies on the other side of Mount Subasio from Assisi; Trevi, standing on its hill overlooking the plains of Campello; Poreta, a tiny village with a restored hilltop castle and church, and finishing in Spoleto - the town of the amphitheatre and aqueduct.

The hotels we've chosen are special too. From Renaissance-style palace in Trevi to a chic renovated farmhouse in Poreta. Food of the region is rustic, often called 'cucina povera'. The most typical pasta dish is Stongozzi, served with black truffles or a spicy tomato sauce, followed by simple grilled local meats and then a slice of pecorino cheese washed down with some superb wines. Sagrantino di Montefalco or red from Torgiano are just a sample. For a picnic lunch why not try the Umbrian staple, the porchetta sandwich - roast pig stuffed with herbs.
