Assisi

We had a very nice morning in Assisi. We met our lovely tour guide, Maura, in the parking lot, and entered the city through the Porta Nuova, outermost of three different walls surrounding the city.

Les was quite taken with Maura's information about Assisi, Santa Clara, and Saint Francis. Ok, maybe he wasn't even listening to anything she said...

After seeing the church of Saint Claire, we walked to the Piazza di Commune and stopped for a cold drink.

Then down the hill through town to the Basilica of San Francesco.

We stopped for lunch at Trattoria Pallotta.

Home for a rest before happy hour on the terrace...

What a perfect spot to sip some wine!
