Where to stay in Assisi

To enjoy a sumptuous stay near most of the Assisi's main tourist attractions, check into a luxury hotel in the bustling heart of town. Visitors looking for a distinctly local alternative to a hotel can stay at one of many convent guesthouses in and around the city. Offering traditional B&B accommodation with simple comforts and good food, monastery lodgings are an ideal escape from the activity of the tourist-driven areas, as well as a good base for exploring the history-rich countryside surrounding the city.

  • This place is wonderful in the warmer weather. It really buzzes with excitement. The tourists seem to enjoy sitting outside. Unfortunately the bars etc have to remove the chairs in the winter and the place looks very bare and univiting. .
  • The piazza is another one of umbria's many but next to it is the house of saint. Fransisca the founder of the order and this is highly recomanded to visit
  • on a nice day just grab a gelato, sit back and enjoy watching
  • It's a steep, but worth it walk up to the Piazza. The Temple of Minerva was interesting, a Roman temple repurposed as a church.
  • After a day of sightseeing in Assisi you need to sit on a bench at this piazza. You'll love it. It's great for people watching. And when you're finished people watching, you head for the bar, accross the Minerva Temple, for some delicious icecream. Biscotti is a great choice :-)
