Today we left Rome for our long awaited bus tour. There is another Australian couple with us, young ones from Melbourne. The rest, about 12 of them, are from Argentina and Brazil so it makes for an interesting mix.
It took us nearly 2 hours to get out of Rome - the traffic was horrendous, a total madhouse.
Finally we arrived at Assisi where we visited the Basilica of St Francis, checking out the churches with all the painted frescoes. A bit of a wander through the cobbled streets of the medieval town and some lunch.
