Everything happens here or close to this place. Probably for the past 800+ years. But not to mean anything far from this place is no good. The place to see and be seen, if you'd like to put it that way. The basilica of San Francesco is a good 10-15 minute walk; while the Chiesa of Santa Chiara/St Clair is... More

In a town packed with tourists, the piazza del comune stands out as being somewhat quieter than one would expect - perfect to enjoy a granita al limone or some other refreshing treat - quite a good way to enjoy a break while visiting Assisi

Stopped here to enjoy a sandwich, people watch and hang out by a 2000 year old Roman temple. Just a normal day in Italy. :) There is a lovely little fountain and a nice benches for a rest.

Assisi is one of the most attractive, clean, stunning hilltop towns we have explored in Italy. It is a half day visit or a fantastic overnight stop. There is a car park beneath the town with an escalator or lift to take you to the start of the town. The whole place is beautiful. The Basilica is amazing and was... More

There are dozens of hotels, restaurants, expresso bars and shops within 100 yards of the plaza. It is a great place to have a seat and watch the locals and tourists walk by.

We passed by here whilst doing a bit of a random wander of the streets of Assisi. Nice area, with lots of places to eat & have coffee. I guess typical of a lot of Italian piazzas.

Apart from the traffic, that is! But nice at night when it's quiet and you can enjoy an Americano or two in one of the many restaurants

This is the hub where it all happens. It is fringed by bars and restaurants, this is where the police station and town hall are, there's a museum/gallery and a few gift shops. We saw rock music here, a choir performing at 10 pm, dancers and a wedding.

Well worth the travelling as we were only passing by and took a detour. Up on a hill, parking short walk away (bit expensive though) and such a beautiful town with numerous churches and eateries - great for an afternoon stroll.

We were amazed to find ourselves in the midst of a medieval festival that lasted 4 days. It was such fun - colourful, beautiful - everyone in costumes, dancing, poetry, speeches, drumming competitions, pageants, long-bow archery contests, sled-pulling races. If you are going to Assisi, it is worth planning to be there for this.
