This area of park land has its serious side as there are plaques and lists of those who died in the world wars. The views of the old town and the Italian roofs are wonderful.

We were tipped off about the Rocca, as it didn't seem to feature on any of the 'must see' lists for Citta Alta. It appears to be an old fortress, perched on a higher bit of ground, about level with rooftops of surrounding buildings. Not...More

Castle exhibition was not translated into English so could not tell but I do not think any info on this was given. Try the castle itself.
