On this leg of our Italian journey we are in Assisi. Our only regret is that we did not schedule more time to stay at Hotel Belvedere, see more of Assisi and the surrounding area, and talk more with Enrico, Mary, and son Julian. Every aspect of our trip through Italy was wonderful. But our stay in Assisi was over the top! We arrived, with backpack/carry-ons in tow, a little late in the evening. Maria, Enrico's sister, got us settled in and comfortable. She must have been wondering, "What kept you?" You see, we talked with her on the phone and she knew when the bus arrived and she knew how much time it should take to walk to the hotel. Before she could ask us about our tardiness, we sheepishly volunteered, "Uh, we took the scenic route to get here, Maria." We knew we were on friendly turf here and we gladly accepted the ribbing for taking 40 minutes to cover a 10 minute route. The hotel has a great location on a quiet main street. The view of the Umbrian valley below, from the street, is incredible. We wondered, "What will the view be like from our second floor hotel room?" You guessed it - BETTER! The lobby of the hotel was inviting and cozy with a big comfy couch, coffee table, and chairs. This proved to be a nice spot to read, relax, and write postcards. A fine restaurant, where the optional breakfast is served, is attached to the hotel property. The restaurant has outdoor seating, a gelateria, a full bar, as well as a full dinner menu. There is a large terrace on the top floor. Here you will find potted plants, tables and chairs and more incredible views that invite the inevitable snack time with a bottle of local wine. The entire place is spotless, comfortable, and the location is perfect for visiting Assisi. Enrico and Mary are very proud of their business and do not hesitate to offer help regarding getting to know Assisi. We valued our time with this family very much. Assisi is a "Must Stop" while in the Umbrian Region and Hotel Belvedere is a "Must Stop" at the "Must Stop!"
