This museum underground holds the Roman artifacts that have been preserved in Assisi. The history of this town is incredible. As you walk the streets you can just try to imagine what was here and who walked these streets thousands of years ago.

A preserved street and many local funerary stones, under the main square in Assisi. Many fascinating relics, including the gravestones of slaves, freed slaves (including several women) and a praetorian guard. All this and dog-friendly too!

A former Roman temple converted to a “sort of” Catholic church-ish… The external looks impressive and the location is where thousands of people pass Assisi and gather around.

We loved this church, small and intimate and very beautiful. The columns outside at the front are quite remarkable, when one looks down at the steps you wonder who and when entered here.
