Rocca Maggiore, Assisi

4.3
Look over the town of Assisi from Rocca Maggiore, a 12th-century castle fortress. Climb the hill to the castle, which appears ruined, but still has two towers open that offer panoramic views. To the west lies the town, and to the east are the mountains of Umbria, part of the strategic defense of this fortress.

  • Come about an hour before the sun goes down and slowly look down on the town and the earth. I came to Assisi to see this. I'm in Italy to see this. It's so beautiful. It's dark and you're going down the road.

  • Good morning. A stronghold really located in a very strategic point from where you can admire a truly very beautiful panorama. Of course, especially on the outside, the signs of time are very visible. Inside everything is very well guarded. Maybe a little too "expensive" the entrance fee. recommended cmq...

  • Stunning place and a great chunk of history. Very well preserved, it's not a ruin but a proper fortress. Entrance is paid, but a nice surprise: payment by card is accepted. One thing to take into consideration: the castle is on the hill and the climb can be exhausting if the day is hot. The road is even and you don't need to hike through but still can be a challenge. Just beside the castle there is a bar with tables outside, a good spot to catch a breath after getting up the hill, there is also a loo available. Beautiful views from up there, I loved it.
  • Very nice streets around and an amazing view on the landscape around , not too many tourists which let's you anjoy to walk around
