Assisi

Return to Italy Map - Virtual Tour

14 June 2004, Monday

From Ravenna, we traveled to Assisi.  The bus parked at the bottom of the hill and we walked up to the Hotel San Francesco, a converted monastery.  We walked to the Piazza del Comune and the former Temple of Minerva that had been converted to a church.  We then walked past the Duomo di San Rufino on our way to the Roman amphitheater.  On our walk back, we had a bird's eye of the Basilica of St. Francis.  Inside the Basilica, we saw the Upper Church, Lower Church, Reliquary Chapel, and the Tomb of St. Francis.  After dinner we went to rooftop terrace of the hotel to enjoy the view as the sun set.
