Assisi (Day 8)

Driving up to Assisi. Beautiful area!
McDonald's that we drove past. They...were...EVERYWHERE. The McDrive sign says "Order, Pay, Go!"

The views from Assisi were amazing...the city sits on top of a hill and you can see for miles. So I had to ruin the view by standing in front of it.
The infamous absinthe. I did not purchase it at this first sighting.

Gorgeous little spot off one of the main roads. I wanted my picture in front of it.
Then I decided it was prettier on its own.

This was in a wall...I don't know what it is but it looks old and important.

Another view from Assisi. The silvery grey trees in the foreground are olive trees. No olives, though, I checked.
The main drag into Assisi.

Streets of Assisi...a lot like Florence, I just loved them!
A stone in a wall showing a date of 1477. 1477! And it's just sitting there!

Two more views of the streets of Assisi. Gorgeous...

A monk walking down the street. They were cool.
Another view of the countryside.

View of the city.
Me, with the absinthe I finally decided to buy. I mean, not buy. This is not the absinthe you are looking for!

Thank you, again, for sharing!

I went to Europe in high school and we went to Assisi, it was absolutely breathtaking! Loved it! My favorite was Rome. We also went to England, France, Switz., Austria, Germany and Italy....I will probably never get to go again but I love your pics
