This church was a beautiful ending to the story of St. Francis. We had learned about St Francis' life and the Franciscan way of life in Rome. Then we traveled to Assisi and took the Bosco di San Francesco walk through the woods which allowed...More

Porziuncola is located inside this amazing church. Unfortunately everything closes for 2 hours during the day and we had to leave after being there for only about 30 mins due to timing. Check their daily schedule if you are not staying nearby.

You can visit this church before arriving up to Assisi where you will find the Porzincula inside a symbolic place for Saint Francis lovers. The church is modern baroque style and very beautiful

Typical renaissance architecture complete with sculptures and paintings. Built over the original church which is still inside and can be visited as well. Dominates the landscape with its magnificent dome.

On our way to visit the Bascilica Santa Maria degli Angeli a local told us to go into the chapel inside the Bascilica with our hearts not our eyes. And it was worth taking her advice. This little chapel embodies what St. Francesco lived. It...More

A beautiful large church was built over and around the small chapel where St Francis preached and died. The chapel stands silently in the center. The large church is an amazing building with many frescoes and paintings well worth a stop to admire.

What are the hours open in June? We will be traveling by train, arriving at 16:00 and want to stop here first. If we walk from the train station to the church, how do we get back to the town?
