Get to know Assisi (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Assisi.

Assisi, Umbria, Italy, is situated in the center of Italy, in the province of Perugia. It is most famous for being the birthplace of St. Francis, the founder of the Franciscan religious order. His story goes back to the eleventh century, when, after fighting in the battle of Ponte San Giovanni, he fell prisoner. This event eventually led to his decision to live in poverty, renounce all worldly goods, and establish the Franciscan religious order. Most visitors come to the town to admire the heritage St. Francis left behind.

The Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi is an impressive building from thirteenth century that was restored to a perfect state and boasts frescoes of late-Medieval artists Cimabue and Giotto. However, it is not the only remarkable piece of religious building in the town. Two more basilicas (the Basilica of Santa Chiara and Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli) and numerous churches, like the Santa Maria Maggiore and Santo Stefano, allow visitors to step back in time and walk around enjoying a truly Medieval atmosphere amongst the buildings that were designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO at the turn of the twenty-first century. However, the list of things to look at does not end here. The town offers two Medieval castles that are open to the public as well as the ruins of a Roman amphitheater.

To get to the city, your best bet is to travel by train. Assisi's train station is a bit outside the centre (five kilometres), but it links the town with the cities of Rome and Florence, which might be on your itinerary as well. Most visitors spend the night at one of these places -- where they are spoilt with a choice of budget hostels -- and organise a day trip to Assisi. However, if you decide to stay in the town longer, the good news is that there are options for an Assisi, Umbria, Italy hostel as well. Your Assisi, Umbria, Italy hostel is dedicated to peace ("pace" in Italian) and is guaranteed to let you get a glimpse into life in the Italian countryside.
