Enjoy this tip about Assisi, Italy from our JourneyWoman community!

It’s About Food in Assisi

“I run an agriturismo B&B and cooking school in the Umbrian hills a place I believe women travellers will love.

Assisi is a town in Italy in the province of Perugia in the Umbria region. The Assisi area is divided into two villages – Assisi proper and Santa Maria degli Angeli 3 km away. I find both are interesting for visitors. Santa Maria degli Angeli generally offers cheaper shopping, that’s where the locals go. Assisi is a splendid medieval town and if time allows it’s worth exploring the surroundings.

I suggest that you go to the Subasio Mountain and picnic at Eremo delle Carceri, a Franciscan hermitage reachable on foot or by taxi. This is a timeless place far from the crowds (except on big holidays) and very lovely. When you’re done you can go back to town and watch the magnificent sunsets from the hexagonal tower of the fortress, Rocca Maggiore. The views are breathtaking!

To buy delicious picnic ingredients in Santa Maria degli Angeli go to Terra Umbra Antica in Via Patrono d’Italia. The cheese and prosciutto are the best in the area. In Assisi, I suggest Baccanale in Via del Comune Vecchio for great wines and interesting preserves.

For good simple restaurant food in Santa Maria degli Angeli I suggest Ristorante Basilica, Via Protomartiri Francescani 11 and in Assisi I like Trattoria degli Umbri, Piazza del comune 40. These are both local family-run places offering good quality and reliable fare at honest prices.”
