A serene and spiritual experience
Nov 2019 • Couples
The day started off with some rain but it soon lifted and we had a most beautiful experience walking in the woods. we started from the entrance gate in the wall in front of the Basilica. The volunteers from FAI were very welcoming and helpful in explaining the trails. The walk down to the visitor centre is charming though after the rains it can be somewhat slippery so good shows and a steady hand are needed.
The visitor centre next to the chapel of Santa Croce is well organized and provides details of the recovery and restoration works.
From there we walked to the Mill and stream and then to the Land art installation by Pistoletto known as Il Terzo Paradiso. This expanse of land with three circles outlined by olive trees provides a quasi ethereal experience. Initially we intended to retrace our steps to the Basilica but instead found a little pathway that took us up the opposite hillside and back to Assisi from Porta Perlici.
All in all a great walk and immersion in the woods surrounding Assisi.

Beautiful

It's beautiful to walk the paths of this forest, where St. Francis walked. From the paths you can reach the center of Assisi directly

SAINT FRANCIS WOODLAND
Mar 2019 • Couples
Enter the forest through a door in the boundary wall of Piazza Superiore di San Francesco and after paying a small donation, take the path down to the valley floor. You will experience a tranquility while traversing this landscape towards the church of Santa Croce. Can be closed due to inclement weather

A walk in the woods
Dec 2018 • Friends
This is a pleasant woodland walk with marked information signs along the way that speak to the cultural, religious, and environmental history of the area. Plan on 2 hours down and back.

Another beautiful site
Nov 2018 • Solo
The woods are very beautiful and peaceful. The walk affords one a different look of the region. It is fairly easy, with a few elevation changes. Obviously much easier on the way down, so make sure you have enough time to enjoy the entire experience.

Art & nature
Jun 2018 • Friends
At the beginning of the trail is a series of quirky, fascinating sculptures. The trail is shady and not too strenuous. If you go during the hotter months it would be wise to take water with you. However there is water available at the Santa Croce fountain near the end of the trail. It's a really lovely.

Lovely hike
Oct 2017 • Couples
Bosco di San Francesco is a lovely walk through the woodlands below the Basilica of San Francesco. You can find the entry along the wall on the left hand side when you exit the upper basilica. The hike is approximately half an hour long, through lovely woods. If you use a walking stick, it helps at times, but it is not a difficult walk. Aside from being rewarded by the beauty of nature, you can also be rewarded with a lovely meal at the end of the trail, at the restaurant Osteria del Mulino. There is also a lovely little church, Santa Croce, just before you get to the restaurant, and a gift shop attached to it.

Walking in the footsteps

If you are here in Assisi to walk in Saint Francis' footsteps take the time to walk through the woods and experience the natural pull and feel of the area. It is inspirational and beautiful
