If in the area, it is worth the visit

The Bascilica is amazing.... travelled with a tour group, so of course, lots of church visits... but this one will always stand out. Great place. If in the area, worth the visit.

If you are going to Umbria then do visit Assisi and the Basilica...down in the basement you can see the tomb of the Saint Francesco and offer your prayers...Assisi is a walled city so you have to park the car in the parking lots...we parked at the top most parking and had to walk to the bottom on the hill...

Traveling around Europe on a coach tour as you would expect visited many churches. This is up there with the best if you are in the area it's a must visit. Beautiful views over looking the city and some nice shops near by.

I personally wouldn't go out of the way to this town, but if you're passing through, then this is a must see. It is very beautiful, great history and story behind it too. Lovely city too.

Many people are not aware that they have to keep the silence and be polite with the others. My feeling was the one of a little chaos.

This is one of the most impressive churches I've visited in my life. Not because of the size, but because of the splendid frescoes in the upper and lower church, the "French" look (Gothic, stained glass etc.), the humble and worn out clothing of St. Francis and off course the tomb of St. Francis in the crypt.

More than likely you're in Assisi to see the Basilica and I doubt you'll be disappointed. It's a wonderful church with plenty of history. It's a casual stroll through the church that culminates underground with a visit to the grave of St. Francis. Go in through the upper level where the newer church is. Be sure to check the church's...

So much to see; we could have spent all day. The quiet, contemplative nature of St. Francis' legacy lives in this church.
