    Assisi was on wife's bucket list and was not disappointed! A great day, made even better by tour guide being flexible with times and durations and locations to ensure we could spend more time in Assisi. Recommend to have the conversation early with your guide so you are not rushed through attractions - even skip something if you want to spend more time somewhere - like Assisi! Finished off with vineyard tour where we bought some great wine for that evening's dinner.......
