Are there *good* tour buses from Rome to Assisi?

Family has 1 day to go for a day-trip to Assisi from Rome. Would love to have a bus trip to Assisi on which a guide talks through what we're going to see, then get there and be free to explore, then meet up for the bus ride back.

It looks like most folks recommend taking the train to Assisi and the public bus from the station to town, which is fine (certainly better than the bus tours folks apparently hated!), but lacks the educational component. Does anyone have a bus tour they recommend?

When are you planning on coming to ASsisi? I know of no bus tours and would certainly recommend staying more than just a few hours in this crown jewel of medieval hilltowns! ANy chance?

Thanks - I wish, but it's not meant to be. Barring a tour bus, we'll take the 7:45am train from Rome so we can get to Assisi before 10 and leave on a 6pm train back. Hoping to see San Damiano and the other sites. Where's the best place for lunch?

Many good retaurants, eg, Ristorante Medioevo, Trattoria degli Umbria, Osteria Piazzetta dell'Erba..all off main square, Piazza del Comune-

and Trattoria da Erminio in backstreets near San Rufino.

Note / San Rufino, Basilica di S. Chiara closed 12 to 2...San Damiano too, about that time.

Do not miss the Hermitage / need taxi to get there
