The perfectly preserved medieval town of Assisi is known as the birthplace of St. Francis of Assisi, one of the most admired Catholic saints in history and patron saint of Italy. For centuries, Assisi has been an important Catholic pilgrimage destination and still today it is a popular tourist destination.
The main attraction for tourists visiting Assisi is the 13th-century Basilica di San Francesco. Here you can see the sacred relics of Francis and beautiful frescoes of his life. Take a walk in Assisi’s winding medieval streets, visit the Roman ruins and admire the town’s gorgeous natural setting.
