Places to See

Assisi is a good hour's drive from Bolsena but well worth the visit. It is a holy place (twinned with Bethlehem gives you an idea of its stature) and its streets are filled with Pilgrims as well as tourists. Many of these pilgrims have clearly travelled from South America, Africa and Asia to pay homage to the Saint. The atmosphere of the town and the Cathederal reflect this: there is a reverence here that is perhaps missing in some other famous religious sites.
