Assisi - The Floral City. A beautiful and authentic Italian Town enshrined by history
Sep 2020
Assisi is beautiful and well worth visiting if you are touring Umbria. Of note is the extent of floral displays and decorations throughout the town.
A visit to the Basilica is a must.
Walking around the town you will discover several pastelerias offering local produce. We discovered a pasteleria serving somewhat unique variations upon strudel. This caught our eyes and we could not be excused from sitting down for that late morning coffee and sampling their home baked produce. Delicious.
With COVID controls we were unable to find any tourist maps at the Tourist Information Centre, so wandering around Assisi proved something of an adventure. That said the main places to visit and directions to the car parking areas are clearly sign posted.
There is plenty of paid car parking at Assisi - all reasonably priced.
Definitely one of the top 5 sites to visit in Umberia.

Surprised
Dec 2019
We came for Saint Francis, but were surprised at the charm of the city. Could be that we just didn't do our homework which resulted in the surprise. However, this is a nice place to visit for a feel of a historic town.

Beautiful but commercially exploited
Nov 2019
Assis and its historic center if for sure a wonderful place. Beautiful medieval city with very good options of small and nice restaurants. There are also small shops but different from other medieval cities, the level of commercial exploration is too much. Other cities you can feel they really care about the history and culture while here you feel a huge exploration of the religious perspective leading for me to a lack of respect considering "San Francisco" philosophy´s and life choices. Maybe because of my admiration and respect for him, I preferred to ignore this exploitation and focus on positive things this place can offer.

at Christmas a beautiful creche
Dec 2019
This area at Christmas has a life size Nativity scene. Worth the stop as you visit the basilica. Consider that Francis is credited with starting the custom of setting up Nativity creches in the churches in Italy

This small medieval town with a castle on top is a charm. Note the old buildings, fountains and churches, but also the galleries and charming stores

Second destination after basilica
Jun 2019 • Family
Assisi historic centre is dominated by the famous Basilica San Giaovani d'Assisi. However, the historic center is more than that. The historical medieval building is well exist and lived by Assisi for centuries and maintain their originality as best as they can.

It is good to walk around the historic center and having lunch at this historic city. People are also very nice and good to foreign tourist as well.

Lovely, but wearing shorts will not get you in.
Jun 2019 • Family
This is beautiful, and we were enjoying the history and the beauty. There were some crowds, but not bad. The city is gorgeous, and at the end, you walk into this breathtaking square where St. Francis' Cathedral is. We tried to go in, but were not allowed because we were wearing shorts. Disappointing, but I do understand their requirement. At the same time, it was 90F, so would still wear shorts next time.

Good for everyone

Once you've got past the rather kitsch full shops and get the main square you realise what a lovely town Assisi really is especially the area near Cattedrale San Rufino.

ROMAN AND MEDIEVAL CITY
Mar 2019 • Couples
This medieval city, home to many Roman ruins, provides a look into medieval life. It is interesting just to walk the side streets, observe the old buildings and art.
This city is a photographer’s paradise; there is a unique photo around every corner.

Great for walking
Apr 2019 • Couples
We enjoyed the contrast between being in a wide open piazza one minute, and a narrow steep street the next. This is a village that is wonderful for walking, with views of the valley or interesting buildings at every turn.

We were struck by how neat and clean Assisi was – no trash, very little graffiti.
