Cascate delle Marmore

The Marmore Falls is a popular destination of absolute beauty, not to be missed. Paths full of greenery characterized by hiking trails that allow you to do spectacular activities capable of thrilling young and old! It is in fact the highest waterfall in Italy, among the highest in all of Europe. The overall difference in height is divided into three jumps, made in succession by the waters of the Velino river which in this way flows and flows into the black. The progression of jumps creates an even more evocative overall frame, almost unique in its kind.


The splendid capital with its characteristic medieval and steep streets, its breathtaking views and the many delicious specialties to taste. Piazza IV Novembre is the heart of the city and here you can see the splendid Fontana Maggiore, the Cathedral of San Lorenzo and the Palazzo dei Priori.

Spoleto is undoubtedly one of the places located near the Hotel La Quiete in Assisi that you must definitely visit and discover its historic walls characterized by the majestic Rocca Albornoziana, which dominates the city. Illustrious testimony of the presence of popes and governors in Spoleto, the Rocca, delimited by a high system of perimeter walls alternated by six square towers, is in fact the symbol of the city and is divided into two distinct areas: the courtyard of honor, with the National Museum of the Duchy is a multipurpose space for exhibitions, concerts and conferences, and the Courtyard of the Arms, with an open-air theater.



Inside the La Quiete complex there is a small chapel dating back to 1700, which aligns with the reputation of a spiritual retreat in Assisi.

Historical notes of the village.
The city of Assisi is known for being the home of San Francesco and Santa Chiara. For this reason, after the discovery of their bodies, in 1818 and 1850, Assisi became a privileged destination for pilgrimages; religious tourism gave a strong increase to the rebirth of the local economy.

La storia DI ASSISI

During the Second World War, in the period following 8 September 1943 and the German occupation, Assisi was literally invaded by refugees, including over 300 Jews. The bishop Msgr. Giuseppe Placido Nicolini transforms Assisi into one of the main centers of the Italian civil resistance to the Holocaust. Disguised as friars and nuns, hidden in the basements and cellars, camouflaged among the displaced, with false documents, the Jews who took refuge in Assisi are protected by a vast network of solidarity that also extends to other areas of Umbria and has contacts, also through the cyclist Gino Bartali, with the Delasem resistance and financing centers in Liguria and Tuscany. The task is difficult. Among the refugees there are women, children, the elderly, the sick, who need care and assistance for their daily needs. A school is even organized where Jewish children can receive Jewish religious education. Thanks also to the complicity of the German colonel Valentin Müller, who will declare Assisi a hospital free zone, no Jew will be deported from Assisi.

"Contact us for the spiritual retreat in Assisi"


“Assisi: Holy Year. The Jubilees of the Church from Leo XIII to Francis ”. An extraordinary collection of testimonies dedicated to the extraordinary and ordinary jubilees, which took place from 1900 to 2000. Open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 15.00 to 19.00 and from Friday to Sunday from 11.00 to 19.00, it can be visited at Palazzo Bonacquisti in Piazza of the Municipality with free admission.

Il calendimaggio

The Spring Festival of Assisi, an event that has lasted for centuries and offers songs, music, serenades under the balconies with a very strong popular participation. The event takes its name from the period in which it takes place, that is, the beginning of May. Since 1954, on the initiative of some intellectuals from Assisi, a dispute has arisen that evokes the times of calendimaggio. The two sides return to challenge each other in our day in a heated but courteous contest of singing, acting and scenographic creations. The parts are none other than the two territorial units, which evoke the territories of the Rivers and the Nepis, into which the city is ideally divided.

Assisi Underground

The guided tour of the Roman Domus in Assisi, where the oldest history of the city is hidden, the one that best tells its past as a colony of the Empire.
