... The Basilica contains her remains. At the end of town is The Basilica of St. Francis. St. Francis was buried on this site in 1226. The church was started in 1228 and is considered the first gothic church in Italy. Inside is beautiful, with 28 frescoes lining the walls that show scenes from the life of Francis which he used to teach the Christian message, a mix of documented history and folk legend. The courtyard overlooks a 15th century cloister that houses ...
... each region we've been in has its own unique flavors, foods and ways of cooking. Every place we've been has made pasta differently. Today, she mixed all the ingredients in the food processor and very little kneading was involved. As part of the cooking class, Letizia also offered us a chance to go into town and do a food tasting at a small shop owned by some of her friends. We ...
... Assisi, about 3 hours north. We stopped for lunch in Spoletto, home to a summer music festival. We are staying in a lovely bed and breakfast about 5 miles from Assisi, with incredible views of the town. After resting a few hours, we're now off to have dinner and explore the town. Looking forward to a cooking class tomorrow with the owner of our bed and breakfast. ...

Assorted popes lived in Orvieto over a 33 year period when life in Avignon became "too hot". They build their own grand buildings within the walls, with the Fortezza Albornoz designed to be defended from without and within! Trusting souls !

Historical Traveler Reviews Sangallo Palace Hotel Perugia
Great Hotel but No Service
This hotel was about 5~7 min. walk from Piazza Novembre which is the center of the town up on the top of the mountain. The single room was small but clean with modern bathroom with shower stool.
The drain in the shower was not working well though...
The breakfast was good with many kinds of bread, assorted meats, cheese, cereals, boiled eggs....etc.
The only complaint that I had was that the hotel doesn't provide any iron/iron board and no laundry service on holidays. Therefore, if you are a business traveler who arrives on holiday, good luck!!
very good hotel, good location.
Poor breakfast, but maybe it is due to off season.
My family loved this hotel. The staff was very helpful, the rooms were clean and modern, with great showers-YES! It was very close to the downtown main street and had a good breakfast. We would definitely stay here again!
Nice and great for families
Our family of four (2 young boys) stayed at Hotel Sangallo Palace for a week in late March to early April. The hotel is very nice with sizable rooms. We booked a family suite special with two adjoining rooms and were very pleased. The rooms are fully equipped with all amenities (a microwave oven would have made the room complete for our family). The one negative, due to allergy and asthma concerns, is that there is a strong smoke odor when entering the hallways since the hotel does not designate nonsmoking floors. The locatioin is perfect for walking throughout the beautiful walled city of Perugia and also a great location for taking trips to many other cities in Umbria or Tuscany - Cortona and Siena, my wife;s favorites, are 1-1.5 hours drive.
Erverything was excellent
I liked this hotel very much. Our room was enormous, the breakfast was impressive. Sangallo is a charming place to stay as a base to visit Perugia and Umbria.
The hotel is perfectly situated among monuments and tourist attractions. Excellent breakfast and comfort. Hi-tech room (e.g. internet-tv in room), very quite, charming at the same time. I will suggest Sangallo Palace to my friends.
