My shoulders were too exposed to enter but they supply a paper shawl for a donation of your choice and you end up with a souvenir! As expected the lower Basilica was crowded

Fantastic basilica, beautful and well maintained including the outside areas. Our guide increased our enjoyment and understanding of the basilica and the town. Lovely little town to walk around and have a coffee.

Disappointed that no photography is allowed in the crypt, but otherwise and awesome site to visit for those who are Catholic.

We were using Assisi as a centre from which to visit other places but the Basilica is inevitably the main reason for visiting this lovely 'medieval' but with all mod-cons town. We had an excellent guide & the frescoes are lovely.
