The Umbrian town was named Asisium and was monumentalised from the second century BC In 89 BC It became municipium and was an important economic and social center of the Roman Empire. His name has prelatine origins, and maintaining an uncertain etymology, is interpreted in two different ways. hawk, goshawk or city or from the base Latin bones or stream with obvious reference to Assino river.

Feature winter temperatures are perceived by the human body as a result of the cold north winds that run along the north western edge of Mount Subasio, usually because they tend to be intense, and their associated wind chill is several degrees below zero. Once or twice a year is the appearance in the city even snow, but thanks to its sheltered location, very difficult falls in large quantities. Spring and autumn tend to be rainy and rather warm.
The areas of Assisi territory that are located in the Valle Umbra instead have a climate, than the city, characterized by slightly warmer summers and sometimes sultry due to the increased humidity, while in autumn and winter in the clear days are often covered by the fog which sometimes lasts throughout the day.
