Assisi Underground: Hidden Heroes Virtual Walking Tour

Dive into an immersive virtual walking tour of Assisi’s secret wartime history, discovering the underground efforts that marked an era of extraordinary resilience and bravery. This tour uncovers a lesser-known chapter beneath the picturesque landscapes of one of Italy’s most historic towns. Explore moments of fierce determination and quiet heroism that unfolded from 1943 to 1945, inspired by the legacy of St. Francis.

Witness the stories of ordinary men and women—figures not widely recognized even among Assisi’s residents—who emerged as heroes, risking everything to shield others from harm. 

Join us from the comfort of your home as we stroll through Assisi and revisit the places where brave souls orchestrated one of the most successful rescue operations of the era. Learn how these unsung heroes forged documents, established secret shelters, and maintained a lifeline for those pursued by Nazi forces. This virtual tour not only recounts the tales of survival but also honors the spirit of those who acted with extraordinary valor in the face of grave danger.
