“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Beautiful. We liked seeing the Porziuncola and the Transito. There are masterpiece frescos depicting the life of St Francis which are easy to view and enjoy.

“Gentle place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Quaint little place for a wander and enjoy a coffee.Lovely setting with plenty of places to sit and rest.In the evening the area gets a little crowded but not to be unpleasant.
Worth a visit.

“Another Beautiful Cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

This cathedral is definitely one not to miss. From the courtyards to the Cathedral to the original Church St. Francis Built with his hands, and his "thornless" rose garden. It's a must see.

“Where it all started”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Inside this Basilica you'll find the "porziuncola" the small church (still original) where Saint Francis met with His friars. Masses are celebrated daily in this wonderful piece of Art and Christian history.
If you believe you can get the "pardon of Assisi" here. Confession, Mass and Communion will cleanse your sins as if you were just baptized. Great restaurants nearby (Santucci) and if you like the big M, there is a Mc Donald where you can enjoy a great American breakfast

“Baroque and Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

Inside you will see a pristine white church with many faithful inside. Be sure to look at the Porziuncolo, the stone chapel inside the church, which is where the Franciscan Order originated.
