I actually remembered Saint Francis of Assisi from Catholic School, so figured I should check out his town. It was great. Small windy roads, giant beautiful Basilica, lots of excellent shoe stores, ice cream shops, bakeries, and many owl figurines. I still haven't figured out why I kept seeing owl merch everywhere, even in other cities. And it is probably the one thing I regret not buying! Why do I need owl merch? I have no idea. Note to self: must start owl piggy bank now for next trip.

|Flora, our new pal|
|Owls, owls and more owls|
|notice the same flower pots on the arch down this little street|
|so many giant macarons- these were larger than a softball. |
I am still kicking myself for not coming home with a smattering
of these miniature canolis. so many different flavors!
|Lots of long winding stairways. And see the building in the center- the pinkish one?|
This color was all over Italy. It's so beautiful... in Italy.
|So many details when you look up|
