Welcome to our hostel

More than 6 million people pack their bags and visit the hilltop town of Assisi every year. A particular draw for history, art and religious groups, this destination in Italy is one that is mesmerisingly full of sights and sounds which depict the Umbrian culture.

In the shadows of the world-renowned Basilica, groups will find our comfortable hostel in a perfect location for getting out and about and soaking up the culture. Part of a converted 18th century farmhouse, the hostel provides groups with breakfast every morning before they set off on their days activities.

All visitors flock to the Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi – the monastery dedicated to St Francis who is buried here. Pilgrims also make the trip to see the Basilica of Santa Chiara to see the tomb of St. Clare.

But there is much more to see and do in Assisi than visit the UNESCO World Heritage attractions. Why not ask at reception for some ideas on what you could do? Perhaps visit the caves where hermits retracted from the world to contemplate life? Or if you prefer to go shopping in the numerous boutiques, these are all within walking distance of the hostel. And remember to ask whether or not the hostel has arranged any special prices for its guests. You might even get a discount!

Once you have embraced the history of Assisi you are also well placed to soak up the nature surrounding this hillside town with some great hiking routes nearby. And don’t forget that Italy is one of the best foodie countries in the world and a perfect spot for sampling a hand-made pizza or some local wines. If you are lucky enough to be here near Christmas there are also some inspiring nativity scenes in the streets.

Why not make an enquiry at our hostel in Assisi today. They are waiting to welcome you!
