Discovering AssisiAssisi is a town of Italy in the province of Perugia in the region of Umbria, far about 20 minutes east from Perugia and approximately half-way between Rome and Florence.
The fastest way to reach the city is driving. If you are a foreigner and you are in Italy to relax and discover its culture, we suggest, you should rent a car with a private driver.
