Assisi

Assisi, originally uploaded by jessiespress.

My Italian adventure was over 4 months ago already! But today, as B. reminded me, is the Feast of St. Clare.

Assisi is the only set of photos I never posted here from my trip, and what better day to finish the tour than on the day that commemorates one of the city’s most famous residents?

As you can see it was a cloudy day in Assisi, but it didn’t rain. It was cool and lovely and perfect. T. and I wandered around the city, gasping in awe and delight each time we turned a corner and found something else delightful and pretty to see. We toured the basilica of St. Francis, climbed up to La Rocca at the top of the town, found a fantastic lunch in an out-of-the way cafe, and of course had some gelato.

You can see the rest of the pictures here.
