For our usual Wednesday day trips, our study center took us to Assisi. I just recovering from a sinus infection after Paris and I felt okay to go and I’m so glad that I did. I had an amazing time, amazing food, and bought the most beautiful leather bags. Assisi is truly magical. We got a small morning tour of the church of St. Francis, then we were allowed to explore and shop.
My friend and I were searching for some authentic hand-made leather and we stumbled across a shop called Modi, owned by Mauro Cenci. I definitely recommend coming here, especially if you are a student, because we received some astounding discounts I do not think I would’ve found anywhere else. I purchase a leather backpack, purse, and computer bag for the price of one leather item. I was so happy!
If you are ever in Tuscany, and want to visit a small, quaint town with amazing food and beautiful views and history, come to Assisi!!
