Arrived at the Hotel Giotto, went to my regular room, unpacked and I already know where everything goes. Charles Kreloff and Bob Hughes had a slice of Pane di San Francesco waiting for me. Went for a walk around town: it’s been beautiful for 1,000 years and it changes but it doesn’t; still beautiful. Herein, the first set of photos. Including food, as requested.
Salad at dinner
Bootleg photo in the Basilica (no photos allowed!)
Basilica door detail
Outside my room, dawn
The Pope’s Dining Room in the Basilica. For nine hundred years, when a Pope visits Assisi, this is where they feed him.
Interior garden at the Basilica
Lemon and sage ravioli (SO yummy)
