We loved Giotto's frescos decorating the walls of the nave with 28 scenes from the life of St. Francis. What was shocking were pictures of the damage from the earthquake of 1997 and the restoration that has taken place.

We were with a group of about 40 Trafalgar travelers using a local specialist. The discussion of the two floors of the Basilica were amazing. The window glass was beautiful, but, unfortunately, we couldn't take pictures of it. We saw the impact of time on...More

Beautiful, special, amazing ... Overcrowded. Difficult to get in to the state of contemplation, but a must visit to those who appreciate Assisi itself, architecture, and, of course, St Francis of Assisi.

Listened to Rick Steves guide through his app, it was a great way to visit the Basilica. Listening to a guide whether by app or in person helps to take you to where St Francis was coming from.

We have made multiple visits here and always enjoy the beauty of the Basilica. Lots of steps, but more than worth the effort.

Arrive early early early and you'll have the utterly charming town largely to yourself. The tiny lanes in the old city are magical. We had time to stop into several churches in a leisurely-paced mid-week visit. And to wander around. The Basilica was very busy...More

A couple of miles, but always taxi cab outside. From memory the fare was about 20 euro's.
