You can visit a lot of place in the world, but one you can't miss is the Basilica! The Bascilica offers you one of the best European Fresco's you can see! Outstanding, worth spending up to 2 hours.

The basilica is wonderful and the art and design is really something to marvel. I found it to be a wonderfully calming and spiritual place even though it is teaming with people. The art and the workmanship is amazing.

I highly recommend this day trip from Rome! Only a 2hr 15min train ride from Termini station ~10 Euro (if you get your ticket validated)! A short bus ride to the top of town. You'll know you are there when everyone gets off the bus,...More

This was our second visit. This year, there was security checking bags and backpacks. The crypt of St. Francis is quite moving.
