A Stroll Through Assisi

Our group of sketchers walked from the Basilica of St. Francis to the top of town at the Piazza Matteotti. One student logged 4 miles on her pedometer We were so busy enjoying the back streets and the Umbrian vista views, we didn't even notice the distance!

 View from the basilica at the Pax Bonum in the lawn; St. Francis' greeting, "Peace and Goodwill"

 Temple of Minerva with the church of Santa Maria Sopra (over) Minerva, built right over the top.

 I feel a sketch coming on!!

 Enjoy the Walk and the View!

 Me with dear friend Susan sharing the sites.

As lovely as it is, if you travel to Assisi, be sure to walk beyond the Basilica and the town center. I could live here, yes I could. Cheers! Victoria
