Worth a visit to see where it all began. Have a good walk around the town and take in the sights and views more »
Just amazing! Assisi was our favorite place in Italy. The Basilica was a key part of what we enjoyed there. Walking around the grounds, we learned new things about Saint Francis. We enjoyed the artifacts. Visiting Saint Francis’ tomb felt especially holy. We went to confession and Mass. it was a spectacular experience!
Very beautiful and interesting. We had a tour guide when we where here which I would definitely recommend so you can get the story of the city and Francis of Assisi. Even if you aren't religious, his story is fascinating and inspiring. The artwork in the church is beautiful and interesting. The views from outside of the surrounding country are beautiful.
