Thanks to its religious atmosphere owed to the mystical memory of Saint Francis and its magnificent monuments,Assisi is visited by tourists and pilgrims from all parts of the world.

The buildings and the winding, narrow city streets are made from the red and white stone from Monte Subasio onto which the terraces that form the foundations of the city rest.

The devotion to the flowers that decorate the windows, balconies and city streets make a walk through this ancient centre even more pleasurable.
