Italy 6: Assisi all day with Mass at St. Francis’ and dinner at a winery
by Steve Ray on March 24, 2022
Today is all day Assisi! People love this mountainside medieval village, or city. It’s always hard to get people to leave but we’re blessed to have a whole day and a half here with Mass at the two main churches and lots of free time as well.
We started today with Mass at the church of St. Francis, actually in the Franciscan monastery attached, which is even more special. We had a guided tour of the whole city and the life of St. Francis and St. Clare, the birth place, their tombs and all the stories and events surrounding their lives.
We also went to the Hermitage where St. Francis stayed up in the mountains. We all enjoyed another winery and dinner outside the city in the beautiful countryside. A great day for all!
