Assisi is my favorite place in the world. You can sense the gentle spirit of St. Francis everywhere. I recommend having an experienced guide show you around the Basilica to explain the various frescos. Make sure you go to the lower basilica where St. Francis...More

This road runs from the Basilica di San Francesco d'Assisi towards Piazza del Comune. It is lined with numerous shops and restaurants all situated within very old buildings. As you stroll this street, you can almost image, as it was in ancient times.

We were lucky enough to get a glimpse of Papa Francesco as he visited the town this morning. Following that we strolled & shopped along this road- lovely time

When mydaughter arrived home from Sorrento yesterday she had recieved a letter from her Bank that her debit card had been copied, so keep your eyes open, she does not know where, exactly but feels it was in the area of Banca Nazionale del Lavora Via San Francesco

Dear sophie8, I'm so sorry to hear about what happened to your daughter and I hope that no illegal transactions were honored using her debit card. A couple of years ago, a couple was caught having rigged a debit/credit card machine in a supermarket in the province of Napoli. The couple had extracted card and pin numbers and luckily, the police quickly uncovered the operation. Hopefully, if such a scam is being run, the problem will be discovered quickly. Bentornata to your daughter and...More
Can you walk to Santiago De Compostela from Assisi, Italy? (2 Replies)
I saw roads named Via Roma and Via San Francesco when I was hiking up Mt Subasio earlier in December. I would love to walk the Camino but especially to or from Assisi. Does anyone know how to do this or if it is even possible? A map would be great too.. Thank You, Lisa

There is no reason why you could not walk from Assisi to Santiago de Compostella, but it would be more than 2000 km so it would take quite some time. I am not sure whether all the old pilgrim routes are still open. Many stretches will have been converted into modern roads.
Airport bus v taxi (0 Replies)
Hi been trying to understand the airport bus timetable but struggling! I gather the airport bus meets the flight then stops at the station then the port. Staying on Via San Francesco d'Assisi, so would it be better to get off at the port or station? Also are taxies readily available at the airport or is it better to pre-book?
