Assisi should be a perfect Umbrian hill town. It's a tiered, overgrown village of pink and pale-gray stone drawn out along a mountainside and surrounded by a valley patchwork of fields and olive groves. It boasts Roman roots, a glowering castle and twisting alleyways from the Middle Ages, and some of Italy's finest early Renaissance art -- all backed by the brilliant green slope of sacred Mt. Subasio. But this city with a population of less than 3,000 (and shrinking) saw, at the end of the 20th century, an average of 4 to 5 million visitors every year. This constant flood of travelers has polished the usual hill-town charm right off Assisi. Countless pilgrims, art lovers, and just plain curious travelers over the last 700 years have imparted to the town a thick tourist shellac it often can't quite shake even in its quietest, least visited corners. It's no accident the University of Perugia's "tourism studies" program is based here.
All this aside, Assisi is still one of Italy's top sights, ranking with the Colosseum, Pompeii, and Venice's canals. It preserves the remarkably intact portico of a Roman temple on its main square, one of the better-preserved Albornoz Roccas with sweeping views, and a two-story basilica hulking at one end of town that's a festival of frescoes. The basilica showcases the talents of the greatest geniuses of the early Renaissance, both Sienese (Pietro Lorenzetti and Simone Martini) and Florentine (Cimabue and the incomparable Giotto).
Umbria is often described as “the heart of Italy”, and is a region you can enjoy all year round. The many surprises for all its visitors and a history full of mysticism, as well as its culinary and musical events, make holidays here a constant discovery. We can show you all that Umbria has to offer, but we prefer to make a few suggestions and leave the rest of the discovery up to you. Happy discovering!
The origins of Assisi are uncertain and sometimes legendary, but it is believed that the first settlement was established in 1800BC by the Umbrians. Then came the Etruscans, after which Assisi assumed importance in Roman times. The town began to build churches and monasteries towards the end of 1100 AD, around the time when St. Francis and St. Clare were born. Around the fourteenth century, the greatest artists of the period flocked to Assisi, from Cimabue to Giotto, to Simone Martini, and Assisi became one of the cultural centres of Italy.
Events taking place in Umbria cross all seasons and types of activity. From Umbria Jazz and Eurochocolate in Perugia to the Festival of Two Worlds (Festival dei due Mondi) in Spoleto as well as Italy’s most important antique fairs in Assisi and Todi Umbria will leave you with lasting happy memories. And away from the sounds or colours, there will always be the region’s cuisine, one the most important being the delicacies of Norcia from which the Italian word “norcino” derives, meaning “ pig butcher”. Try it for yourself.
Whether you’re looking to recharge your batteries or see art in its purest form, Santa Maria degli Ancillotti is the ideal starting point for your explorations. Umbria offers the possibility of a wide range of itineraries: food and wine, religious, historical, artistic and naturalistic, where you can discover more about its land and people.
For sports lovers, Santa Maria degli Ancillotti is the ideal base for many types of activities. From the relaxing 18 holes at the Antognolla Golf Club to the thrill of the descent of the Corno river by raft or kayak or the view over Assisi whilst paragliding and hand gliding from Mount Subasio. Lake Trasimeno offers sailing and windsurfing. We recommend discovering the area around the resort on foot, by bicycle, or on horseback to be at one with nature.
The importance of tradition
Simple recipes handed down through generations have the look, smell and taste to delight guests’ palettes and allow them to discover the culinary tradition that Santa Maria degli Ancillotti has made its own. The search for authentic and quality products enhances the taste and smell of a cuisine which is based on the simplicity of the recipes and careful choice of ingredients by the owners. Santa Maria degli Ancillotti offers a different culinary journey every evening. Menus are seasonal: antipasto is followed by dried or freshly prepared pasta, a second course with side dishes, after which you can taste a selection of local cheeses. The home-made dessert and strictly seasonal fruit are only the first stop on this trip which everyone will want to repeat every evening. And let’s not forget the fully stocked wine cellar managed by Alessio: wines from selected local producers, with some special names included, will be an excellent companion to the food on offer.
