A must do when you visit Assisi is seeing the beautiful Basilica of St. Francis, built in the XIII century and characterised by two different and complementary parts, the Lower Church and the Upper Church. Once you are inside, try to spot the wonderful frescoes by various artists including Simone Martini, Giotto and his school.
Follow your guide through via San Francesco to reach the medieval Piazza del Comune, where you can see the Temple of Minerva dating back to the first century B.C., a true jewel of the ancient arts.
The tour continues towards the New Church, built on the birthplace of S. Francis. Walk around the church to get to the Oratory of St. Francis Piccolino, inside which (according to legend) the Saint was born.
Walking along Corso Mazzini, you will then arrive in Piazza S. Chiara, overlooked by the Basilica of St. Clare. Inside it, you will admire the remains of the Saint and the beautiful wooden crucifix which, according to legend, spoke to S. Francis.
