Interesting place to take in the views, history of Assisi...the ancient architecture is wonderful. Just outside of the cathedral.

The Palazzo Giacobetti is a great place for a stroll and we've enjoyed it on prior visits to Assisi. This time, they were setting up for a concert, with a huge stage and accompanying lights/sound, so no really change to hang there.

Along side the Basilica is the Palazzo. It is notable for the alternating use of color in the stone used, making the palazzo at times look like stairs when it is an incline. It is a grand area from which one can take in the size and beauty of the Basilica itself.

After getting off your bus or taxi you might want to run into the basilica, stop and take it all in first. The palazzo is a fitting entrance to so complex and rich a basilica.

This palace is absolutely a sideshow, could be even more enhanced but be between the Papal Church of San Francesco, the Basilica of San Francesco and the beautiful Via Portica with the courtyard, it is quite normal that nobody will notice this equally beautiful building. However it is impossible to miss it.
