Rick Steves' Europe

Assisi and Italian Country Charm

Season 9 Episode 6 | 25m | Video has closed captioning.

In the Italian countryside, Rick connects with rustic, traditional culture: enjoying an agriturismo (farmhouse inn), seeing how prosciutto and pecorino cheese are made, and hiking down into deep and ancient wine cellars. He ends in Assisi — the hometown of St. Francis — which retains its spiritual aura to this day.
