The City of Peace is twinned with Jerusalem and San Francisco. The Basilica of St. Francis contains priceless artwork. Interwoven medieval streets and interconnecting alleys invite you to explore further and from various viewpoints there are wonderful vistas over the valley. If the Basilica contains the gems and jewels of Assisi the crown must be La Rocca, a 12th to 15th century fortress which dominates the city.

Other delights are Umbrian truffles, pork, wild boar and many types of cured meat and sausage.
