Even though it was put up in a relatively short time to celebrate the life of a saint who emphasized the importance of poverty, there's nothing that can compare to the wealth of frescoes that date from the dawn of an artistic awakening in Europe. The restorations from the earthquake of 1997 are amazingly well done. Magnificent structure; even better wall decorations. Expect to spend at least a couple of hours to get the full benefits from the experience. Reading up ahead of time will only help.
This is fairly different from Florence or Siena. This is really a place where people come to pray, so touristic activities are limited inside the basilica (no cameras). The late middle ages frescoes are quite impressive, and the museum is very interesting, even if a bit short on information.
Assisi is a very must visit for tourists. It has all the charm of spiritual and touristic place to be. An ancient city with narrow streets.and the basilica is beautiful! Spent a night there . worth the visit.
THE city on a hill! One of the most spiritual places in Italy. Christmas here is peaceful and especially spiritually moving. Third time here, foretaste of heaven.
This is a must-see, and if you are catholic, or a lover of St. Francis, it is worth a trip to Assisi. I've never been to a basilica with so much to see - from the two sanctuaries, to the basement area and the extensive frescos, you can spend hours here. I was also impressed by the uniqueness of both of the sanctuaries. And the exterior is gorgeous, with extensive views of the valley below.
