The true essence of Assisi can be discovered between the narrow alleys and the ascents of the old town. Remains of a Roman Amphitheater are still in the center of Perlici quarter: a travertine wedge arch, and a garden that lays on area once known as the arena. Not far away from the Duomo, on Via del Torrione, two orders of more arches are there to be seen: that is what remains of a Roman Theater.

The majestic and beautiful Basilica of Santa Maria of the Angels located outside the walls is 4 km from the centre.
