We had to queue to get in even on a non-busy day, but well worth it. If you like visiting churches, this is one not to miss.

This church was very near our hotel so we stopped by on our way out of town. The facade was interesting, and we were glad we had visited.

This was the first of seven churches we visited in Assisi. Each has a unique history that spans several centuries. This cathedral is the third church to stand here. The facade was built in the 12th century. It has an interesting door where at the base there is a lion eating an early Christian. This seems appropriate since the cathedral... More

The Duome is quite simple with regard to decor in comparison with The Basilica. However I did enjoy seeing the various portrait paintings of Pope John Paul II. The exhibition in the crypt is nicely displayed and worth a visit.

It is interesting to see how they have exposed the ruins of the old Roman Temple on which the church was built.

Not the main attraction in Assisi but still worth coming to when visiting the town. Watch out for the hours around lunchtime when it closes.

Amazing how even the simplest of Churches/Duomos in Italy take on a special sense of Christian Holiness. Ornate, but not approaching the big name Duomos we visited, but special none the less. Just up the hill from Saint Francis' Duomo, tucked into a corner. Do not overlook in your visit to Assisi
