By Alexandra Redisch in Assisi
It’s early Friday morning in Tornandrea, a small village close to Assisi in Umbria. The Travel Bloggers Unite conference is about to start, and the day will include photo walks and a gala reception. But we are in for a surprise – the owner of the Valle di Assisi Hotel & Resort has kindly made a helicopter available for the guests.
We’re offered a ten minute ride, three people at a time. But notice the storm clouds on the horizon? Soon, the weather takes a turn for the worse, and I’m one of the lucky few who gets the opportunity to enjoy a bird’s eye view of Assisi.
And of course… Assisi!
Assisi, the Basilica of San Francesco and other Franciscan Sites is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Here are more UNESCO World Heritage sites around the world.
