Assisi




Barry and I like to play a game with our in-laws at the end of a trip together: Top Five. You know... top five restaurants, top five dinners, top five desserts (yes, a lot of them are food-specific), top five medieval towns. Assisi is my number one. It has a special place in my heart. Sure, it's super touristy. But it is one of the most beautiful, serene towns I have ever been in. I was moved to tears in the Basilica of Saint Francis. And I have such fond memories of a trip my parents and I took there over a decade ago.
