About the tour

"We shall always tell our children and everyone else...during a persecution that annihilated 6 million Jews...in Assisi not one was touched !" (written by Prof.Viterbi, one of the 300 Jews that sought refuge in Assisi. 300 may seem a little number next to the horror and death but it was something and it remains unforgettable. Learn the story of the courage of a Catholic Bishop and his Assistant, a Cyclist Champion, Monks and Nuns, two Printers, a German colonel, the Mayor and the population of Assisi, 7 of which became Righteous amongst the Nations. This Museum of Memory tells us an incredible story of hope and humanity, the Spirit of Saint Francis and incites us never to forget. The tour starts or ends in the little Garden of the Righteous with a beautiful view.

Meet Patrizia-Umbria


Patrizia’s our archaeologist-turned-tour guide, who’s had so much fun guiding visitors around the green heart of Italy. Perugia's always ready to throw a surprise. Although the city's not very famous, it doesn't shy away from entertaining its visitors with its stories and breathtaking views. "Perugia during the Umbria Jazz festival is magical! Every day at noon, a New Orleans band marches up and down the main street to get people to dance and follow them to the different free concert venues. Lovely music, and magical atmosphere through the night!" she says. On her tours, you might catch a smatter of different languages - she's a polyglot who speaks 5 languages. "A funny incident was that on a very busy day, I was halfway through my tour in Perugia before it hit me that I was doing it in the wrong language and nobody had dared to interrupt me!" she laughs. “I always try to convey some typical Italian word or proverb ready to be used immediately. Normally by the end of the tour, everyone remembers it and who knows...continues to use it at home!” Her goal as a professional guide is still to surprise the visitors. She almost stumbled into the exciting space of guiding visitors around her city. When she was working as an archaeologist on excavation sites and museums, she enjoyed showing Perugia's beautiful landscape. "And then I got the chance to accompany groups throughout Europe, and decided being a guide was the profession where I could combine my different interests: history, languages and meeting people from all over the world," she quips. As Marcel Proust said: you don't always have to travel to new destinations but you have to look at them with new eyes.

Been on many of Patrizia's tours over the past few months. She really knows her historical details and can communicate these in the most engaging way. This tour of the small museum telling the story of what took place in Assis between 1943 and 1945 was totally engaging and hearing from the Bishop of Assis at the end as well as the journalist who brought into being the museum gave it the real wow factor. Thank you Patrizia for this tour and all those who made it possible, not least setting up wifi in the museum to make the tour possible. Looking forward to joining more of Patrizia's tours.

Really interesting tour! I learned a lot about this hard time in Assisi. The Bishop's speech at the end of the tour was very touching.
