The view from the castle is worth the climb. I walked from the Basilica San Francisco in about thirty minutes. It’s uphill and there are some stairs but it’s not too strenuous and the views are spectacular!

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

Great views from up here. Effort has been made to turn some of the rooms into character pieces with furniture and costumes. More could be done with it but it was worth seeing.

The climb to the top is worth it just for the views. Wasn't impressed with the inside castle as was expecting much more

We walked up here early in the day, the views are picture perfect. The castle is full of historical information and is interesting to explore.

Certainly worth the long climb to see both the castle and the fine views of Assisi. A great photo opportunity with most of the fort still intact on a very grand scale

The staircase to the top of the tower is narrow and slippery. I would not recommend it for anyone with small children or elderly. Views at the top are nice but the view in front of the castle is just as good without the steps....More
