The walled city of Assisi is pretty much intact, with stone buildings and several churches filling the inner sanctum. Walk along narrow city streets lined with restaurants, shops, and inns, and allow your mind to wander and wonder back to how it must have felt to be Francis, back in his day.

Make your way through the city, stopping at the Basilica of St. Clare. Dedicated to St. Francis, one of Italy's most loved saints, the Basilica of St. Clare houses Italy's most important medieval art treasures. Pass the Piazza del Commune (Town Hall Square), the Palazzo del Popolo (People's Palace), and the Roman Temple dedicated to Minerva. You'll also visit the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, where the small Portiuncola chapel stands, and, of course, the world-famous Basilica of St Francis.

Frescoes of the greatest painters of the 13th and 14th centuries have decorated every nook and cranny of this magnificent church, built under the direction of Brother Elias in 1228. The Basilica is made up of two churches: the Upper section is adorned by frescoes illustrating the life of St. Francis. The tomb of St. Francis, which you will also visit, is located in the lower part. The stark walls and simple furniture are in keeping with the simplistic ways of Francis and his followers.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
