In addition to religious architecture, civil architecture is relevant too, for example the Rocca Maggiore, a fortress placed on the top part of the old town, and the roman archaelogical remains.
Outside the city centre of Assisi, going towards the Monte Subasio, it is possible to visit the Eremo delle Carceri, an hermitage which was used by San Francesco, and to do a walking along the mountain paths.
Close to Assisi, it is advised to perform a visit to the charming medieval village of Spello, which hosts a famous Infiorata flower festival during the religious celebration of the Corpus Domini, generally in May or June.
