    Mitch, that is precisely when I am going. I look forward to it. I've always wanted my own hobbit home.

    You'll never regret it. It's amazing to me that there's no place else quite like it on earth, that I've ever visited.

    Phooey. Theme park Catholicism. Go to Cortona. They've got St. Margaret there incorrupt and fewer tourists.

    Assisi was my favorite stop on our trip in 97. Four basilicas, St Francis, St Clare, the San Damiano Cross, the Portiuncula inside Santa Maria de los Angeles. Wow!

    The photo looks as if it were taken from my hotel window. The Basilica of St. Francis is the Sistine Chapel of Italian Medieval Art. I found the work of Simone Martini even more engrossing than that of Giotto. When I was there in 2006, the restoration work, needed after an earthquake, was still progressing. I suspect it still is.The other churches are more for devotional rather than aesthetic value.Yes the town is most of the year full of tourists and pilgrims. When I was there, it was Feb., and the numbers were very manageable. Just don't expect to find a good meal there.

    Beautiful and evocative! Reminds me of somewhere in Northern Ireland from one of my Saturday evening childhood memories.

    I'll be there for 5 days in early November…can't wait! One of our diocesan priest has been traveling there for at least 20 years..he will be leading our pilgrimage…

    Don't forget the church to St Claire which is just up the hill. Both these two places are lovely and so holy.
