Well worth seeing, quite ornate with parts of the floor inlaid with glass so that one can see and appreciate the Roman ruins below.

A lovely peaceful place and well worth seeing the font where St Francis was baptised. Nice to see the earlier foundations through glass screens in the floor.

This is built on top of ancient Roman ruins and has a glass floor so that you can see them! How cool and unique is that? We loved this church.

As we didn't visit other churches in town I cannot compare the Duomo with others, but although the interior was much smaller than I expected, it is certainly very ornate and the painted ceiling above the nave is rather spectacular.

I believe that Saint Rufino somehow gets forgotten given St. Clare and St. Francis. However, he is the patron Saint of Assisi and this is another Church you need to see on your spiritual pilgrimage

St. Rufino, the 3rd-century bishop who brought Christianity to Assisi and was martyred here. St. Francis, St. Clare, and Emperor Frederick II were baptized at this church.

Not nearly as interesting as the Basilica but well worth a visit as are all these ancient churches. Originally meant to be the biggest church in the world it never made it due to the Black Death.
