Assisi is a long, narrow town in the middle of the hilly Parco del Monte Subasio. That means finding Assisi accommodation with a great view is as easy as devouring amazing pasta on a patio. You know what else is easy? Booking deals on Rome hotels and taking a road trip to the capital city.
All of Assisi is historic, but you’ll find most of the sights on your itinerary in the west side of town, along with the food scene and several Assisi hotels. Starting at Basilica di Santa Chiara and working your way west, you can see several smaller medieval churches and piazzas on your way to the “big one”. Make sure you stop at the Cattedrale di San Rufino—a cathedral built in honour of St Francis’ mentor. Shop your way through local galleries, or paint the landscape from the top of the city at Rocca Maggiore, a huge 12th-century castle. Finally, take a tour and watch the sunset at the famous Basilica Papale San Francesco D'Assisi before tucking in to a smashing evening devouring pasta, sausage, fresh veggies and local vine in the hills.
Catch a flight to Perugia San Francesco d'Assisi Airport (PEG), about 17 km west of Assisi. Catch a cab or hire a car with Wotif for any day trips. Otherwise, there’s a bus line that runs to and through the city centre.
