All Assisi roads lead to the Piazza del Commune. This area of Assisi, at least for me, was like the heart of the city. Great place to congregate if you are in a group to sit and reflect and plan. For the most part, you...More

You might want to take a break at a nearby cafe and enjoy a drink . Many photos being taken here but beware as there is traffic driving around this fountain . For me this is a place to sit and enjoy your gelato .

From this point, choose a street to meander down and you will marvel at the restaurants and cafes, the leather and porcelain shops and the peace and quiet. Or just take a seat on the Piazza and watch the world pass by!
