We recently toured this church with a local guide. He provided much information on the church, the paintings, St. Francis and the specifics of that time period.

Amazing but too busy since a lot of tourists in there. I wish I could take picture because it was really pretty inside.

Much see when in Assisi - beautiful church and exterior. Nice view outside when you walk up to the second level. Not far from the bus stop.

The Basilica is beautiful. When we were there it was not very crowded so you could take your time going through. You cannot take photos inside.

A must see in Umbria. St. Francis was born and died in Assisi. The basilica is one of the most important places of pilgrimage in Italy and also very interesting cultural and historical centre. The upper and lower churches are decorated with frescoes by Cavallini,...More

This basilica is a must see when in the region. The interior is amazing and absolutely jaw dropping. Whether you are a spiritual or not, definitely do not want to miss this!

This is an amazing church, well worth spending several hours in. Be prepared though - there is a steep climb between the 2 basilicas and can be difficult if you are disabled. The surrounding town is also stunning.

A couple of miles, but always taxi cab outside. From memory the fare was about 20 euro's.
