This is an absolutely stunning view point which can be found after a very easy uphill walk. The views of the Umbrian region are breathtaking and the area extremely peaceful. Well worth the effort.

You walk up....and up...through the lanes of Assisi and after many steps and steep inclines you get to the castle - there was only one other couple there when we visited in the morning - maybe the walk is off putting. Amazing views, some restored...More

We LOVED Assisi! Such a beautiful small town and the views from the fortress were stunning. It was cool to check out the inside but maybe not worth the 7 euro entrance fee but this seems to be a trend in Italy. If you're looking...More
