Get ready for this wonderful 8-night tour, combining walks through historic towns located at the top of the hills. Take a walk along peaceful trails: one starts on St. Francis's Way – it runs along the stretch that Saint Francis took on his last visit to Assisi in 1226 – and another on the Sentiero degli Ulivi (Olive Trail). 

Discover these rural routes full of exotic flora and fauna, crossing the olive groves that date back to Roman times. Stroll along the pilgrimage trails through sacred forests that, for years, have been cared for by Franciscan monks.

This is the perfect holiday for lovers of food, wine, flora and fauna. If you are looking for opportunities for bird watching, to see art and history and to swim this route is for you.

  • Travel to the town of Assisi, considered the jewel of the Umbria region.
  • Visit one of Italy's best-preserved medieval cities: Spello. 
  • Enjoy the gastronomy of the region called 'cucina povera' and try the delicious dish of Stogonzoni pasta.
  • Discover the secluded Chapels of Saint Francis, the great Sassovivo Abbey, and the ruins of Campello Alto.

    The administration was good before our trip and our questions were answered quickly. The accommodation was also good. We had no problems with the baggage transfer too.
    Our group of 5 had a really great experience with orbis ways. Our contact person was helpful via email and via phone. Great accommodations and each host was helpful and generous with kindness.
    I travelled last week to Madeira with Orbis Ways and it has been an amazing experience. Accommodations were exceptional, and everything was explained very well, apart from that the Island is amazing, must be seen at least once in a lifetime. Dinners were very good, with local fresh homemade food! Very recomending!!!
    Excellent trip. Excellent communication with Orbis. Lovely accommodations. Luggage transfer was always done well and the overall trip was excellent. I cannot wait to do another walk in 2023 and will use Orbis ways 100%.
    Few days ago I finished Camino Francés. Orbis Ways planned the trip for me, arranged my routes and accommodations as well as luggage transfers. Everything went smoothly from the beginning in St Jean Pied du Port until the end in Santiago. Rooms with private bathrooms that they booked for me were comfortable and clean and luggage transfers underwent without mistakes. My daily routes were well planned. In 34 days I had only two problematic situations with accommodations and their 24 hours assistance team solved them in few minutes. I enjoyed every minute of my Way. I am planning to return and do some other route - Norte and Portugués gor sure. Orbis Ways will be my choice again.
    I did the wonderful walking holiday trip of 8 days Mont Blanc...the experience was incredible, from the beginning everything chosen in the dossier was beyond expectations, providing all the necessary information.I am very grateful for the wonderful and detailed attention of Jhonay. Also the accommodations chosen were very comfortable!I have no doubt that I will repeat as soon as I can, the routes are spectacular!
    Orbisways did an outstanding job of planning our trip along the Camino de Santiago. The provided voucher provided excellent information, the accommodations were awesome, never had any confusion regarding travel details and the staff I worked with prior to our trip were kind and very efficient. I highly recommend OrbisWays and will definitely be traveling with them again!!
