Let me state this first. Assisi was my favorite place in Italy. That being said, The Basilica was not number one on my list in Assisi. Perhaps I feel this way in order to honer the fact that St. Francis didn't want it built in the first place. Now, putting that aside I must say place is inspiring. The fact that St. Francis is resting there seems to ground one in history. I loved the controversial Madonna favoring St. Francis over John the Baptist painting. A visit to Assisi must include this great Basilica.
