    The summer heat

    Fountain in Piazza Vescovado

    When I have visited Assisi, it was the first half of July, the temperature rises up to 30C degrees and more, so it was very hot.
    Most of the town streets are narrow and short so you can hide yourself partly in the shadow when strolling around. When climbing up to Rocca Maggiore fortress or in the open city spaces, you might be exposed to the sun which is burning. Make sure you have a bottle od water or at least stop at numerous city fountains to refresh yourself with cold runing water. Especially take good care if you have a little kids, the sun heat might cause them a lot of troubles.

    Summer heat

    In summer, it can get very hot in Italy in general. In places like Assisi where you'll likely be walking a lot (including a lot of uphill walking), it's important to drink lots of water to stay hydrated. And if you need to sit down and take a rest, do so.

    Also, wear comfortable shoes - with all the walking you'll be doing your feet will thank you.

    Not so joyous shopkeepers!

    Piazza del Commune which is surrounded by shops

    Ok, Assisi is a very holy place, and I really liked it, but there was one thing that bothered me. Some of the shop keepers had real attitudes. They were not freindly and they were down right rude. They are so jaded by the hordes of tourists that they just don't care. No repeat business anyway, with or without a smile. I found this true in Brugge, another city
    that gets besieged with visitors. Locals in Assisi were very friendly, but not shopkeepers. Too bad, they should be glad they work in such a beautiful city. Pity!

    A fee for sitting outside?

    Assisi Pizza, not as cheap as it looked

    Ok this was strange. One night I went to eat some pizza.
    The waiter asked me if I wanted to sit outside, ok great idea, that is until the bill came. They charged a couple euros for sitting outside. I was not happy to say the least.
    He encouraged me to charge me more. Only for tourists
    I'm assuming. Ask if there is a charge before you sit down.
    The next night I just took it to go.
