Even though the history of Assisi stretches far back into time, we tend to identify the town with its most illustrious son, Saint Francis. Not far from the town itself are the places Italy's patron saint first prayed - the Porziuncola and the Eremo delleCarceri - there are the masterpieces of art housed in the monumentalbut extremely plain Lower and Upper Basilicas, where the opportunity to admireworks by Giotto (for example the famous series of frescoes of Christ as achild), Cimabue, Simone Martini and Pietro Lorenzetti is itself alone reason enough to visit Assisi. But that's just the beginning. This guide provides youwith beautiful illustrations of all the other works of art you may want to see, in an exhaustive overview of painting in the 13th and 14th centuries, as well as of the monuments in the town and the surrounding area, a true oasis of peace andbeauty set in the gentle Umbrian landscape.
