From much of town and the surrounding countryside this ruined castle can be seen as it sat high above Assisi. It was a steady climb from the centre of town to the top. There was over one hundred metres of elevation gain to the Rocca...More

Assisi is riddled with gruelling up-hill walks and to get to Rocca Maggiore it's no different. But when you get the to the top the reward is worth it. Gorgeous panoramic views of the Umbrian region sprawling with towns, verdant hills under a placid sky....More

It's a fair wee walk up to this castle in the stifling heat but so absolutely worth it the castle itself is lovely with some good information and nice wee displays inside but the view from the highest point was the highlight simply stunning.

It's a long, long way up from the Basilica to this old fortress. But the fantastic view make it a must.

If you visit Assisi, make sure you take the walk up to Rocca Maggiore. It is a brief 10-15 minute walk up from the historic center (not terribly steep). There you will find a fairly well-preserved castle with spectacular views of the whole valley with...More

It was an especially windy day for a hike but the view was magnificent and well worth the biting cold! The grounds are well kept and there are several interesting things to see in the castle. But the view! Seriously!
