Take a virtual tour of Assisi, one of the must-see medieval hill towns in the central Italy region of Umbria (see Top Places to Go in Umbria). Assisi is famous as the home town of Saint Francis, or San Francesco, the patron saint of Italy. The Saint Francis Basilica holds the tomb of Saint Francis and is a popular tourist and pilgrimage destination. For more sites associated with Saint Francis in and near town, see Saint Francis in Assisi.
Assisi has several interesting churches, Roman ruins, medieval sites, museums, and shops and makes a good base for visiting Umbria. See Where to Stay in Assisi for top rated hotels.
