The Basilica of St Francis is a must visit any time you are in Assisi. Unlike a lot of Cathedrals and Churches there is a still a good, quiet atmosphere here and the monks are quite vigilant in maintaining respectful silence inside the Basilica.

A must visit in Assisi is this beautiful basilica with frescos by Giotto and the crypt of St Francis in the lower level where they also hold a mass. It occupies a huge piazza.

A visit here is really a must - not simply because it is the resting place of St Francis but because of what greets you as you enter it. The highlight of the place are some stunning frescos by the likes of Giotto and other...More

Crypt of St Francis of Assisi in basement where services are held daily. Many centuries of construction and art create a moving, ornate, and unequalled appeal. St Francis was abused and imprisoned as a child which resulted in him becoming close to God. It is...More
