This church is not just beautiful, but had an atmosphere of reverence that moved even the non- devout. Can't quite say why.

Probably the most mystical place ever seen. The Beauty of the buildings and architecture, is overcome by the unique spirituality of the atmosphere. Even if I am not religious I must admit that visiting S. Francis grave is an unbelievable experience. Something can't be told.

This basilica is on three levels. Siant Francils is buried at the lowesst level. The relics of his life are worth looking at. Giotto has played a major part in decorating the churches in the upper levels.

This huge outer courtyard is magnificent and not to be missed on an Assisi visit. It is the best way to appreciate the architecture of this marvelous church.

The Assisi Basilica is worth the journey. It is best viewed in the evenings or mornings before the throngs of visitors arrive. There are also other sacred Saint Francis sites all worth seeing very close by.

We visited the Basilica without any religious belief but we were struck by the serenity and beauty of the interior. The frescoes by Guido and his pupils were awesome and in good condition. We went down to the crypt to see St Francis of Assisi...More

A couple of miles, but always taxi cab outside. From memory the fare was about 20 euro's.
