At the beginning of Via Portica there is the Museo Foro Romano. It is located under the square Piazza del Comune. The paving, the basis of Tempio della Minerva and the platform of the palace of Tribunale are of Roman origins.
The main entrance has 3 steps. A secondary entrance is available for people with disabilities, but they need a help because of a wooden ramp which is 4,50 meters long and has a 19% slope (museo Foro Romano).
Another accessible toilet is located inside a pizzeria in via Portica.
Go on till Piazzetta Verdi where is theTeatro Comunale Metastasio, built in 1836. The theatre is usually representing the Musical Chiara di Dio, by Carlo Tedeschi (firstname.lastname@example.org - www.chiaradidio.it tel. 075 815381). The main entrance has 5 steps, the secondary entrance is accessible to people on wheelchair by a wooden ramp 3 meters long and with a 17% slope. The theatre has also an accessible toilet.

Down Via Fortini there is the Arco del Seminario, called Portella di Panzo during the middle Age.
From here walk on to Via San Francesco; the paving has been recently restored, so it can be walked easily. Along this street you find the Fonte Oliviera (1570). Near it there is the Monte Frumentario (second half of XIII century) which was originally an hospital and then a point of food stockage of the town. The building is arranged on 3 floors and is used for cultural and social purposes. One of the floors is accessible from Via San Francesco, the 2 other floors are accessible from Via Fontanella.
Reach now the Oratorio dei Pellegrini, a small chapel (3 steps at the entrance) built in 1457.
Here it is also possible to visit the Pinacoteca Vallemani (a step at the entrance).
About 30 meters from the Pinacoteca, at n° 14, there is the Loggia dei Maestri Comacini, so called for the symbols of master masons(a compass, a rose a maul and a set square) which appear in the girder of a gate dated 1485 and in the keys of the windows. The building is from XIII century and was enlarged in 1477. It seems it was the sit of the workers from Lombardia, who worked in Assisi for the construction of the Basilica and of the monastery of San Francesco.
About 100 meters from the Loggia there is the Basilica. Just few steps before it is possible to visit the Museo Missionario Indios Frati Cappuccini in Amazzonia. Down the street Via San Francesco crosses Via Cardinale R. Merry del Val. Here are about m.5 of slope 13% to reach the distance bringing to the Basilica Superiore di San Francesco (1230-1253). For getting to the Basilica Inferiore you find a distance of 100 meters with 15-16% slopes.
