Holy Places: Assisi

Of all of the places I traveled during a three year expanse living in Italy, Assisi stands out as one of the most holy.  I expected to feel this way about Rome and I did up to a point, but tourism, vendors and the overall commercialization of Vatican City left me feeling a bit deflated, which is not to say I didn’t appreciate the wonders of it all. 

Assisi on the other hand, remains unspoiled, perhaps because you need to work harder to get there and those seeking out this serene, peaceful place, generally go for holy reasons.  I am thrilled to have been blessed with the opportunity to visit some of the lesser traveled cities and towns in this exquisite country and was never disappointed by the beauty I found. 

This is a photographic journey.  Since I rarely sleep, I was able to capture the silence of dawn. 

I hope you enjoy it!
