Fun, happy, kind, friendly staff member went out of his way three or four times to make our visit the best it could be. Great stop to start your Assisi experience, right at the train station.

i loved the small sized church compared to St Peters basilica. The gross opulence was not found here. Well worth the trip?

Located in the Assisi train station, these folks are the best! They will show you exactly what to do for the time that you are there and help you maximize your experience out of Assisi! They love running into travelers who speak English; Rebecca is very helpful!

I have never been to Assisi. I did not know the town is about 15-20 minutes away by bus from the train station. I did not want to lug my luggages around, and found this unlikely Discovery Station offering "luggage service". Jack and Helen are from the States. I was quite surprised and delighted when Jack welcomed me with detailed... More
