Lots of buildings in Assisi are old and very unique in its architecture. This is where the all boys choir musical was in Christmas 1976. We tried to visit all the cathedrals that were open to tour.

If you have time this is an interesting church built over a smaller church there are lots of market stalls outside selling local crafts

Mega hot day! What better way to cool off than this beautiful church. So much to see but no pictures please.Not being of a religious nature this really was a cracker.Especially the Poziuncola inside..like a little church within a church. Stunning place to visit then go on to the Basilica di San Francesco.You will love it.

This grand church can easily be seen from the highway that travels from Perugia past Assisi - it's lovely dome can be spotted for what seems like miles. Situated in the middle of Santa Maria degli Angeli, it plays an important role in the religious history of the area. The famous church of Saint Francis of Assisi lies just up... More

Simply Stunning and should not be missed. St. Francis is buried here and his original church is inside the Basilica. Put this one at the top of your must see stops in Assisi.

This church is not in the walled city, very beautiful as most of them are in Italy. If you are passing through, it's a must see. Would I go back, no, but I'm glad I've seen it. Interesting history.

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.
