Things to see
The city offers you many attractions. The famous Basilica of San Francesco is unique being composed by two different churches, the Upper and the Lower ones, plus a crypt where for almost six hundreds years the remains of Saint Francis were hidden. The Basilica of St. Clare in contrast exemplifies simplicity. Very distinctive is the city’s Cathedral dedicated to St. Rufino, who was martyred after he converted the city to Christianity. The Basilica is partly built on top of a Roman cistern.
There is more to Assisi than just religious history. The Rocca Maggiore Castle dominates the city from a hill; the views from its towers are breathtaking. The Roman amphitheater now houses a beautiful garden, while in the Piazza del Comune you will find beautiful examples of medieval Palazzi and a beautiful 16th century fountain.
