Assisi was a city that firmly holds the title of ‘most surprising’ when looking back through my Italian vacation. What started out as evidently the least researched city on my part, stayed with me as one of the highlights. A hilltop town in the heart of Italy, Assisi was the perfect time warp for me, an unabashed, self-proclaimed medieval TV buff. And Assisi only added to my obsession, feeding my fascination with its uncanny resemblance to the sets of Game of Thrones (with a lot more charm and a lot less gore). So to sum it up whilst Assisi, birthplace of St Francis holds a great significance for Catholics and is a pilgrimage site, for me it was the Meereen to my Daenerys Stormborn.
