The Essential
Highly recommended
St Francis's message had a profound influence on the development of Assisi. Nowadays, the saint's ideals of poverty and simplicity are more evident in his rural hermitage retreat than in the San Francesco basilica. However, as a result of his spiritual ideas, a new style of painting was born in this magnificent building, as demonstrated by the frescoes by Cimabue and Giotto. Largely as a result of these works, the town was declared a World Heritage Site in 2000.
