Why so early you ask? Well I’m a morning person and I’d rather spend my time wandering around Assisi than sleeping late in Rome. Besides, the early morning ticket was half the price. I guess I still keep to that student mentality of travel. (Remember when you could by a book entitles “Europe on $5 a day”? Then it went up to $10.) This is one way I remain "very grateful" that I can be hopping on a train to Assisi.
