Regardless of your religious persuasion, you can't help but be moved by visiting this place. It is beautiful inside but it is its religious significance that overwhelms you. Definitely worth a visit.

The walk at night around the Basilica was soothing and tranquil. Sadly it was closed at night but the park and piazza around is worth the stroll.

The Basilica is very impressive, both inside and out. Besides the many beautifully decorated side chapels, the Basilica is build around a chapel that looks like a tiny church inside the huge bacilica. Also, don’t miss the thornless rose garden and its interesting story.

First visit drawn in by the beauty of the area. Didn’t go in as not suitably covered arms etc. Nice quiet area, beautiful building. Nothing in English so had to look up details on google.

Given the fact that it's even walkable from the town of Assisi, I guess walking down from the train station should absolutely be doable, as it's like a 1/3rd of the distance and it's flat. If you want to walk from st. Maria... More
