For lovers of beautiful things over the centuries, spending time in Italy has been a sine qua non. For your Grand Tour – or even for a weekend between Rome and Venice – do not miss beautiful Umbria and breathtaking Assisi!
Tucked right behind the VB showroom is the site of St Francis’s family home and the oratory which was a stable when he was born there in the year 1182.
In the nearby Piazza del Comune is the pillared portico of the splendid Roman temple dedicated to Minerva. Within easy walking distance from the centre are the Basilica of Santa Chiara, the Basilica of St Francis with its famous frescoes by Giotto, and the city’s cathedral, San Rufino, showing off one of central Italy’s grandest Romanesque facades.
