Assisi, Italy - St. Francis Basilica

St. Francis led a simple life and peacefulness surrounds the town of Assisi. Part of the restful feeling could have been because of the mist and drizzling rain which made the town on the mountain top feel cut off from the world. The Basilica of St. Francis is beautiful and is in fact two basilicas, one built on top of the other. Our hotel, Il Castello Hotel, was once a monastery and just a short walk to the basilica.

with the Latin chant of mass rolling down the hill, Assisi was mystical
