Assisi is One of the Best Places in Italy to Visit

When you look up from the valley floor to the hill town of Assisi, perched on Mt Subasio, the first impressions are lasting and impressive. The towering walls at the north end of town, the Rocca Maggiore, The spires of the basilicas all stand above the valley harkening back to the thirteenth century. Assisi is one of the Best Places in Italy to Visit.

Assisi is one of the most beautiful of the hill towns in Umbria, and sacred ground for tens to hundreds of millions of people worldwide. Famous for figures like St Francis and St Clare as well as painters and poets Assisi has a history going way back into antiquity. Settled in the iron age and influenced by the Etruscans Assisi became a Roman Municipium in 69 A.D., was conquered by the Goths (c. 545A.D.) and finally falling under the influence of the Lombard Dukes of Spoleto. Assisi formed an independent (Ghibelline) commune early in the 12th century and fought with Perugia as well as the Hohenstaufen Emperor Fredrick Barbarossa. At the end of the 12th century St Francis was born (c.1198 A.D.) and from the 13th century Assisi fell under Papal protection. Much of the look and feel of Assisi comes from this period of Church rule and you can easily visualize life here in the high medieval and renaissance periods.

Today, Assisi maintains its vast boundary walls, the powerful castles of Rocca Maggiore and Minore, as well as the beautiful Basilica Di San Francesco, the final resting place of the founder of the Franciscan order. The streets and shops are among the finest representations of Umbrae’s medieval hill towns and the feeling here, among its 25,000 inhabitants is contemplative.

Assisi is a must see for anybody visiting Umbria. It is a great day trip or home base with many wonderful sites to see in the town itself as well as many great sites to see in the surrounding area. Hotels have been updated with the most modern comforts and there are many shops selling traditional crafts from Assisi and Umbria.

As you approach Assisi you will be struck by the vast and powerful Basilica Di San Francesco, an apparent manmade cliff dominates one end of the town. Assisi rests on the western slopes of Mt Subasio covered with medieval structures and topped off by the very imposing Rocca Maggiore. There is parking available in lots located around the towns curtain wall with lifts and stairs to access the town above.

Once inside there are several sites of interest such as the Roman Temple of Minerva, now a church, and the Piazza del Commune with the towers of the medieval city hall.

How to Choose the Right Summer Camp

How to Choose the Right Summer Camp

Every year millions of children and teenagers from around the world descend upon the multiple of children’s summer camps at their disposal. These kids camps are perfect for confidence boosting as well as providing a good physical work out for your child. The first thing you need to decide on is the type of camp they will be sent as well.

There are two types of camp; Day Camps and Residential Camps. If this will be your child’s first time away at a camp then I suggest choosing a day camp to test the waters so to speak. If you are willing to let go for a longer time period then opt for a residential summer camp, these are the type of camps where the real fun can be had.

The next thing to do is decide exactly what you want your children to be doing during their camp experience. Of course involve your child in this decision making process as much as possible.

Many people tend to prefer more traditional children’s summer camps where children will take part in various activities ranging from hiking to swimming with strong self-confidence development activities such as drama being thrown to a good size. This is the type of camp I recommend if you want the best throughout the experience.

The next type of kids summer camps which I wish to discuss are Sports Camps. As the name suggest these camps focus on certain types of sport. Your child will be getting an absolutely fantastic work out whilst on these camps. There is a whole range of different sports available from skateboarding to fishing to motocross as well as the usual suspects of football, hockey and basketball.

If your child likes education then I suggest sending them to an academic camp. Each camp will be directed to study the subject in a fun way. The camp includes Marine Science and Robotics. Send your children here if you want to increase their interest in certain subjects.

If your child likes a bit of adventure then send them to an adventure camp where they will learn things like fighting alone in the wild like well as taking part in thrilling activities such as rock climbing and abseiling.

Special Interest camps are similar to academic camps but there is a lot less focus on the education. The diverse ranges of camps here include Aviation, Chess and Weight Loss Camps.

If your child has a religious background then you may consider sending them to a religious camp. Check with your child first whether this is what they want to do as the activities will be a lot more different to other camps.

If your child has a disability then I suggest sending them to a special needs camp. Here they will get the support that they need in an environment properly equipped to deal with them.

There are also many children’s summer camps available at overseas locations. I suggest looking into these if you wish to provide … Read More

Everything To Plan For Your Adventure Tours and Camps

Everything To Plan For Your Adventure Tours and Camps

Going to summer camp can be an entertaining learning experience for adolescents. They can attend a traditional summer camp where they can choose their favorite activities (such as outdoor recreation, arts, and crafts) from a list and spend as much or as little time on each activity as they choose. Teens having a certain interest can join specialized camps that target their instruction on one activity.

Participating in an adventure tour for teens is perfect for high school aged students that are interested in traveling and adventure. Nevertheless, a true adventure camp provides more than common activities like rock climbing, high rope courses, kayaking or mountain biking. Adventure camps give teens once-in-a-lifetime chances to learn something unique and could involve touring different states or countries.

Some adventure camps include scuba diving certifications, marine biology expeditions, sailing and perhaps even expeditions to tops of glaciers. Predictably, these kinds of activities demand specialized gear, so this kind of summer camp is more costly than just a traditional summer camp. Common cost is about $1000 to $2000 a week, and might not include transportation cost back and forth from the beginning and ending points.

Due to the cost, registering for an adventure tour for teens is simply not for everyone. Furthermore, there might be language skill requirements if the group will be visiting an area where English isn’t largely spoken. As an example, a summer camp in several Latin American countries such as Costa Rica requires participants to get at least one year Spanish study.

Adventure camps last anywhere between a couple weeks to almost a month and may take individuals to other states or countries, dependent upon the concentration of the camp. For instance, an adventure camp conducted in Alaska may target activities such as kayaking, backpacking, glacier ice climbing and whitewater rafting. An adventure camp trip to Australia is definitely exciting and features activities such as scuba diving, surfing, an outback ranch stay, ATV’s and whitewater rafting.

Besides the adventure and travel element, an adventure tour for teens helps teens develop values like self-sufficiency, leadership, resilience, adaptability and cooperation. A few programs integrate community service activities that contribute to the environment and towns visited. For instance, students are able to do volunteer work in preservation parks such as tree planting, eliminating unpleasant plant types and collecting seeds.

Safety is essential to coordinators of adventure camps, so applicants are screened before they are allowed to enter the program. They are interviewed to determine their level of commitment to find out if the program is the correct summer camp choice for them and matches them together with an appropriate summer program (based on age group). Individuals are often given a packet that contains information such as a detailed clothing list, reading list, medical form, insurance form and participation agreement to help them prepare.

Students who wish to join an adventure tour for teens need to research the different programs around before making a decision. They should go to websites, make inquiries and obtain … Read More
