We came across this fantastic musuem almost by accident: although we had passed it as we walked through the town, we only decided to visit after buying a cumulative ticket (also including the Pinacoteca) at the Rocca Maggiore. This is good value, by the way. The discoveries made, and displayed, in this underground museum become all the more remarkable as... More

You can miss this ancient frontage as you are walking down the main street. It is near the tourist info office and worth stopping by to get a quick pic-make sure you go inside the converted church to see the beautiful lighted statute of Mary

Although hiding a Catholic church behind the columns this magnificent structure is but the tip of the iceberg of what lays underground (which you can also visit). The age and durability of this structure just made us say "wow".

Roman temple preserved beautifully (at least the facade) by being converted to use as a Christian church. Worth stopping to examine

The history of this Roman temple is amazing! This is a must see when you are in Assisi! Be sure to see the rendition of the original roman piazza before the medieval Assisi was built around it.

A wonderful afternoon walking among the Roman ruins in the foundations of Temple Minerva. Loved that work is ongoing to preserve these amazing relics of the past...

We were looking mainly for the Basilica of San Francesco and wandered across this temple. The outside is impressive, and the inside is quite lovely, and you can explore the forums that lie beneath.

How "Pantheon" like to see! Although I need more research it was one of my Assisi highlights. Can't wait to show my husband!
