Direct Bus from Assis to Cortona

by Bluetree20

Is there a bus to take from Assis to Cortona? How long it is gonna to take?
And anywhere on the website that I can find the schedule?

RE: Direct Bus from Assis to Cortona

by mccalpin

There are 5 or 6 direct trains a day between the two towns - see www.trenitalia.com . The trip takes a little over an hour and costs just under 4 euro for a second class seat (it is amazingly how much cheaper train travel is in Italy than in other parts of Europe).

Note that these trains go to the station for Camucia-Cortona. Looking at www.viamichelin.com, Camucia is a kilometer or two from Cortona - I can't see exactly where the station is...

There are at least another 6 trains a day that have a connection in Terontola-Cortona...it's possible that you may be able to get a local bus from Terontola instead of changing trains and continuing to Camucia-Cortona - but I see that Camucia is much closer, so why bother...

http://www.cortonaweb.net/eng/informazioni/arrivare.php says:

"The Terontola station is 11 km from Cortona and the Camucia station is 5 km from Cortona. There is a bus service to Cortona from both stations.", but it does not provide schedules for this bus service.

Also note that Assisi station is a few km downhill from Assisi centre, actually it is in Santa Maria Degli Angeli. There is a bus service connecting the two, schedule at http://www.apmperugia.it/canale.asp?id=17 .

Travel Tips for Assisi

The Basilica of St. Francis

by croisbeauty

The majestic Basilica and Sacred Convent have characterized the serene rural landscape of the Umbrian countryside since remote times.
The whole very huge complex can be seen from a distance when approaching to the town of Assisi. Never ever before I have seen the sacred complex of that proportions. It thus not metter wheater you are believer or not, weather you are catholic, muslim or else, you just have to admired it.
On the other hand, if you are a catholic, this is a place you have to visit for at least once in your life time. Staying in front ot this remarkable complex you'll find your lost faith, no doubt of it.

The Basilica of St. Francis

by croisbeauty

This is the look of the Upper Basilica when approaching from direction of Via San Francesco. The huge and beautiful rose window dominates the front facade which is, besides it, very simple designed.
This is the holy place, by all means, always crowded by pilgrims coming here from whole the world. When strolling around the variaty of languages can be heard.

Didn't expect this city to be so attractive. Before we arrived at the actual city, we stopped for a visit at two churches. The first one is where St Francis used to stay. 'Santuario di Santa Maria' in Rivotorto.
I remember that inside the church, there were sort of old living quarters beneath the ground floor.The background gregorian hymns sung by a British choir set us all visiting the church in a state of peace and tranquillity. The other church was Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels a.ka. "The Portiuncola" Again there's this little chapel inside the big Basilica. What struck me inside this Basilica was a Statue of St Francis holding a cane baske. To this day pigeons use this basket as their nest. ( See Photo Below)

The actual city of Assisi is packed with two things. Churches and Souvenier shops. Among the churches / Basilicas we visited were the unmissable St Francis Basilica, St Chiara's, St Peter's, Santa Maria del Rose, and San Rufino's Cathedral. Narrow medieval alleys and the spectacular panoramic view benath St Chiara's square are unforgettable.
