The churches in the old town of Assissi on the hill are famous, but this church in the valley is stunning! We also went to Mass there which was a lovely experience.

The Bascilica was our best discovery during our visit to Italy. It is amazing the preservation of a church inside a church. Enjoyed the rose garden. Such a wonderful way to express the teachings of St. Francis.

Take your time in these places in Assisi. They are worth storing in your memory banks. They are close enough together to walk them all in a couple of days and well worth the effort.

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
