After leaving Rome, we headed to the small village of Assisi where we walked around, had lunch, then toured the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi. No photos were allowed inside the Basilica. After leaving Assisi, we traveled to Florence, one of the most beautiful cities I had ever seen (until I saw Venice later in the trip). Tomorrow: Pisa and Venice.
