What is Assisi Like?

The fantastic location of Assisi, perched high on a hill at 1,300 feet and seemingly reaching up to the heavens, is a fitting site for the birth of the patron saint of the Franciscan order. UNESCO declared the structures of Assisi as a World Heritage site in 2000. The biggest attraction is the Basilica di San Francesco built in the 13th century, with beautiful frescoes of the Catholic saint's life and some relics, including his tomb. Other churches worth visiting include the Santa Maria Maggiore Church and the Church of Santa Margherita. Viewpoints of the Rocca Maggiore is another attraction. Go off the beaten track to the area behind the Piazza del Commune and find some small shrines, beautiful houses, and the Church of Santa Maria delle Rose with its wonderful sculptures. And when staying in Assisi hotels, be sure to pick up some Umbrian gourmet specialties like local truffles, charcuterie and cheese, as well as some Assisi DOC wine.

How to Get Along with Local People in Assisi

When in Assisi, respect the religious and be quiet in the Basilica of Saint Francis, as many go there for prayer; an audio guide may help you appreciate the site more. The attractions of the town are spread across a hill and it is easier to start sightseeing in the old part of town at the top of the hill and go downhill from there, stopping on hot days for some ice-cream and shade along the way. Book a place to sleep in Assisi for more than a night, and you will be able to appreciate the beauty of the medieval town and its artistic and architectural glories. Don't forget to browse through local shops for souvenirs to take back home. Let Venere help you find the best Assisi hotels.
