I liked the architecture, the history, the religious and spiritual atmosphere, the art and the surrounding areas. I chose to visit Assisi off season because I don't like crowded and noisy places. I am glad I did that.

Fabulous experience and so lucky to have arrived just before Mass started, so we had the whole experience of that in this very special place of Christianity.

A beautiful testament to St. Francis. The tomb downstairs is very spiritual. I can see why this has been a sight of pilgrimage for centuries.
