One of the most beautiful of all basilicas in Italy. The lighting at night makes it even most special.

Beautiful church. Try to avoid the times when the tourist buses are unloading. Because of its prominent position at the end of the town, it is ideally photographed in the early morning or at sunset. Inside, it is a double basilica. The upper basilica has...More

The city of peace, the fantastic frescoe by Giotto, the interesting city, the wonderful dolce (dessert/sweet) made my journey the most memorable ever.

Free entry and plenty to look at. The downstairs has more attractions to look at than upstairs, but it has a good atmosphere. The place gets busy with travellers, school trips and tourists. Go either first thing or after dinner as it is quieter.
