Our Guide Giuseppi Assisi
Karlyn knew that for us to truly get the most from our visit to Assisi, a guide to the town and cathedral would be needed. And what a fabulous guide!
Giuseppi (Joseph) was a Tuscan native, but his English was perfect and he had an artist's heart. A storyteller, sharer of all things interesting as well as historic, he emphasized those aspects of the Cathedral that would appeal to us - the art materials, the painters, the history of the time, the story of St. Francis, the use of the churches over time ... everything that kept us enraptured! I think he was surprised though when most of us, after his tour was over, gave him a HUG in appreciation!! LOL We could have listened to him for hours, despite the 90F heat!
