This gem is worth the short trip out of town. It is a short walk from the train station. It is a must for a St. Francis pilgrimage.

Santa Maria degli Angeli is a little village close to Assisi and probably forgotten by many tourists. This is unfortunate because here you will find a big basilica completely devoted to St. Patrick and St. Claire. But besides the basilica the town itself is very attractive with some of the finest restaurants in the area. Walk around the town after... More

The focal point is the Cathedral in the center of the town surrounded by narrow cobblestone streets and small fountain with good restaurants almost at every corner. A small park with kids playground which was great for the little one.

A beautiful basilica which houses the amazing little church of Porziucola where Francis worshiped. You really must visit this church if you are in Assisi!!

The church itself here is not a highlight in Europe, but the little chapel supposedly restored by Francis was beautiful and moving. Particularly loved the altarpiece inside.

Before you actually climb up to Assisi, this church marks where St. Francis died. As the Pope had been there just a few days previous to our visit, the massive church doors were open to the plaza - stunning views into the church. I am not Catholic but I was touched to see the faithful attending mass and visiting the... More

The dome of this place can be seen for miles and on a quiet afternoon, we thought we'd take a look. Firstly, the building is very large and imposing on the surroundings. The area itself is suprisingly quiet and I think that tourists dont really know much about the place so stay up in teh main town of Assisi -... More

Beautiful church must see. Take a bus very easily from Assisi for 1.3 euros. Do not miss. No admission to enter.

An ornate exterior hides a real gem inside. Not being a religious person I was not in awe of the place,but understood its significance in the history of religion. Worth a visit for its uniqueness alone. Set in a large square surrounded by tat sellers!
