“too much traffis, still”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

The piazza, the center of Assisi, still has too many traffic to really enjoy. But one should have an espresso and enjoy the historic site

“Hub of Assisi”

The Piazza at the top end of Assisi, with cafes and restaurants around it. A fountain in the middle. Temple of Minerva church there and tourist info office.Lovely to sit and watch the locals and the tourists over a coffee

“Rich atmosphere”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

Great restaurants and gelato, but mostly a great feeling of community. We were there during the annual contest between the sopra and the sotto cities--drumming, and great revelry. We loved it!

“So fun!”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

My hotel was right around the corner from Piazza del Comune and my absolute favorite thing was to go sit in the square before the daytrippers got there or after they left and watch the locals. In the evenings the monks will come and sit with the locals at the bars lining the square - very surreal for someone who didn't grow up around clergy. Kids playing tag, school choirs singing - love love love.

“Center of Town”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

This is the center of town, bank, bookstore, cafe's, and the main streets go through here. Lots of choices and directions to go from here, all a short walk.
