Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. ~ Saint Francis of Assisi
Assisi is the home of Saint Francis, who founded the strict Franciscan order devoted to God and helping the poor and sick.
The medieval town and Basilica de San Francesco are located at the peak of the serene Mount Subaso, presenting a splendid view of the rolling greenery of the valley below. The day we visited the weather was rainy. We followed our tour guide, Giuseppe, up the slope into the basilica.
