A preserved street and many local funerary stones, under the main square in Assisi. Many fascinating relics, including the gravestones of slaves, freed slaves (including several women) and a praetorian guard. All this and dog-friendly too!

Under-rated Roman ruins that may be the ancient Roman forum or more likely, a religious complex associated with the above ground Temple of Minerva. Worth the small admissions fee and the 20 minutes for viewing,

We first visited the Museo e Foro Romano around 10 years ago and it has since been updated and extended. It is well worth a visit with many interesting exhibits and information on how Assisi would have looked in Roman times.

A little out of the normal traffic pattern to the other basilicas and churches but very beautiful and worth the visit.
