July 24 – Assisi, Perusia

 
We said goodbye to Rome this day and drove to Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis. We got a walking tour of the city and visited the Basilica of St. Francis. Then we were off to the medieval city of Perusia, the capital of Umbria. There we visited the Piazza IV Novembre, and found a little café where we had the world’s best cup of hot chocolate, according to our tour guide. Admittedly, it was absolutely delicious!
