This castle is beautiful! We walked up the hill to get here which was hard but rewarding once you got to the top. Lots of history and they setup rooms to show how the people would look in each.

If you have the time - make the effort and walk up to Rocca and enjoy the scenery - all around. The area is historical and good to ponder over from up here.

It sits high above Asissi, the original fort built to protect the area. Although it is quite an uphill walk to reach it (in the heat of August), it is well worth it. Take lots of water and take it slow if you must. There...More

Stunning views all around. A bit of a walk but there is plenty of panorama on the way. Take water when it is hot.
