Maps and Orientation of the Town

During the busy tourist season in the summer, Assisi can become busy, particularly at the weekends. However, if you choose to explore early in the morning, the streets are peaceful and quite empty, allowing you to fully appreciate the stone architecture to its best advantage.

The very heart of Assisi is home to the spreading Piazza del Comune and this square is close to the main restaurants and sights, many of which line the Corso Mazzini. Directly north-west of the Piazza del Comune, the Via Portica and also the Via San Paolo offer a direct route to the Basilica di San Francesco. If you require maps of the city, Assisi has a number of different tourist offices, situated next to the Porta Nuova and also on the Piazza del Comune itself.
