- By Shuttle - Access from Porta Nuova
If you plan to use the shuttle or need to collect your bib and race pack (at Piazza Santa Chiara, in front of the Basilica), you must access from Porta Nuova. The distance from Porta Nuova to the pre-start gathering area is 1.4 km. It's a guided scenic route that will allow you to immerse yourself in the historical beauty of the city and warm up.
- By Car - Saba Porta Mojano Parking / Saba Porta Nuova Parking
Assisi offers several parking options, but we recommend two: Porta Mojano and Porta Nuova. Saba Porta Mojano is the largest parking area in Assisi. From here, you can walk approximately 50 meters to Piazza Santa Chiara and follow the guided scenic route to Piazza Inferiore di San Francesco, the pre-start gathering area. Alternatively, by using Saba Porta Nuova Parking, which is right beneath the shuttle drop-off point, you can easily join the guided scenic route towards Piazza Santa Chiara, and then Piazza Inferiore di San Francesco, the pre-start gathering area.
- On Foot - Pre-Start Gathering Area
If you have already collected your bib and race pack or prefer not to follow the guided scenic route, you can walk to the pre-start gathering area before 8:00 AM.
Regardless of your chosen access method, we recommend being present by 8:30 AM at the pre-start gathering area as the blessing ceremony for the athletes will commence at that time. Afterward, you will be escorted to the starting point on Via Guglielmo Marconi, which is approximately 150 meters away.
