Return to Asssisi - some tempters

Woke to rain...... and low clouds, a church which is approx 1/4 mile from the hotel disappeared from view!! As I type it is framed by blue skies.

With the forecast for rain all day where to? We decided to go back to Assisi..... there were quite a few places we hadn't visited.

As we got off of the bus the heavens opened and we dashed in to

San Pietro. This painting looked quite dull but when I took the pic.....

We came out of the church and the rain had stopped never to appear again

The next point of call was San Maria Maggiore

At this point Trish decided she wanted a nibble and a drink. She had two nibbles to my one...... no idea what they were but very nice!

Then onto Chiesa Nuovo

The Piazza del Commune

This was the Temple of Minerva and is Roman. It is now the Chiesa di Santa Maria sopra Minerva

We decided to eat in Assisi and went to Medioevo. I had Bruschette and Ravioli and a glass of Vino. Very nice it was too.

We had ice cream on the go!

We decided that wanted a snack for this evening and this place promised "slow food"

I think Trish just wanted the owner Fabrizio to kiss her hand as he had Tuesday ;) He did make our sandwiches which are sitting not far from here.

And the rest of the afternoon was spent strolling and enjoying the fact that the sun had come out.

Not sure where tomorrow. It will be the toss of a coin! and somewhere new....

You do realise I have lots more photos..... I'll add them as new posts with more detail on the places visited.
