Back in the car today. We are off to Assisi. It's pretty cold again.

Assisi is the spiritual capital of Umbria. It is beautiful. St Francis of Assisi was born here and one of the most moving places I have visited is downstairs from the lower church of the Basilica di San Francesco: the crypt of St Francis where the saint's body has been laid to rest.

We did some serious shopping. I bought a painting ready to go on the lounge wall at home. It's fabulous.

After a very average lunch we were back in the car and on the winding road.
