Definitely worth visiting when you are in Assisi. This church is easily found in the main square. It is beautiful inside. Recommend a visit.

The Church of Santa Maria is one of the most unusual churches in Italy. In the midst of the Roman Forum one encounters an ancient Temple of Minerva with its Roman columns in front. But with the coming of Christianity, the space holy space has been transferred to Maria.

The entrance to this museum is located just off Piazza del Comune on Via Portica. It is a HIDDEN GEM. Admission price is €5 and would be worth twice that amount. As you step down into the entrance of the museum, there are numerous artifacts arranged around and on the walls. You think, looks somewhat small. You pay your admission, and walk into the display area and look to the right and there is a long tunnel running back under the Piazza del Comune. This is the original Roman street level in front of the Temple. Located along this walkway are numerous artifacts and then when you are in front of the temple there is the original tribunal dais and as you turn 180 degrees there is the monument base. As you continue down the long walkway, you encounter one of the fountains and in a backroom various statues.

Such a combination of styles and beliefs. The now church, sits in a large plaza at the top of the city. Wonderful view of the valley below from this point as well. The museum downstairs is an insight to the areas past. There is a lot to take on a day trip.

This museum underground holds the Roman artifacts that have been preserved in Assisi. The history of this town is incredible. As you walk the streets you can just try to imagine what was here and who walked these streets thousands of years ago.
