Description

Assisi is a small Medieval town in Umbria. It is well-known for being a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Catholic pilgrims have visited Assisi for centuries, as it is the birthplace and burial site of St. Francis. Even today, as you walk through the town you will find priests strolling side-by-side with tourists and pilgrims. However, you don’t need to be Catholic to appreciate the quaintness of the town or the beauty of its architecture. The most sacred place of Assisi is the Basilica of San Francesco that preserves the remains of the famous saint. The Basilica consists of a building of immense artistic value, both for the architectural structures and for the precious interior frescoes that are the result of work of artists such as Giotto, Simone Martini and Lorenzetti. Since Assisi is built on a hill, you can encounter some steep climbs during your visit, especially if you want to climb up to Rocca Maggiore, a fort that sits above the town.
