Your LivTours’ Marmore Waterfalls & Assisi Day Trip from Rome starts with exclusive hotel pick-up in a climate controlled vehicle, so all you have to think about is relaxing and enjoying the views during your drive. Your chauffeur will give you some background information on the world famous Marmore Falls during your drive. Created by the Ancient Romans, these man made waterfalls are sure to surprise you by their unrivalled beauty. The Marmore Falls are not only beautiful, but also a feat of Roman engineering as their original intent was to give movement to the stagnant and swampy waters of the Velino River. The waterfalls today are used to fuel a hydroelectric power plant and the water is only falling a certain number of hours per day. But not to worry, LivTours has your back and will make sure you see the falls when they are running!
Take a Hike Down the Waterfalls!
After admiring the beautiful views of the falls from a distance, it is time to experience them firsthand. LivTours will provide you with rain ponchos to enjoy your time hiking down the waterfalls. It is advisable to wear warm shoes (it can get chilly in the mountains with cold water) designed for wet surfaces. Lover’s Terrace is one of the highlights of your hike. Situated just at the end of a path which leads to a small rock shelter opening overlooking the Velino River. This view alone is well worth the hike! The Botanical Gardens is another highlight of the Marmore Falls hike, located in the lower Belvedere Area.
Hiking lasts for about 90 minutes and no doubt you have worked up an appetite. Your driver will meet you at the bottom of the trail to take you to Assisi where you will be able to enjoy lunch (not included in the price) and get ready for the second half of your day.
Asissi | A Gem of Art and Architecture
Once you have finished your delicious lunch, it is time to discover the capital of Franciscan Catholicism. You will have freetime in this town dedicated to Saint Francis with highlights such as Saint Francis Basilica and the Santa Chiara Basilica, both integral parts of history related to the life and death of St Francis.
The Basilica of St Francis of Assisi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000, is quite the highlight of the town. This 13th century basilica is the perfect example of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. Learn about the Franciscan friars, their traditions and inventions which they have contributed to modern day society.

Don't miss Assisi
"We booked LivItaly's day trip to Assisi from Rome because we had heard that Assisi was definitely worth seeing. IT IS!! There's a special aura that surrounds this ancient city that you won't feel anywhere else in the world. Our trip was very comfortable, the driver was extremely friendly and our guide the best we could have hoped for. The tour includes stopping off at the Marmore waterfalls which was very interesting and beautiful. But Assisi is the rockstar here!! Don't miss it!"
