This is perhaps the easiest Rocca to access as escaltors and lifts have been installed. Great views from up here and some interesting art work, some frescoes and general history. There is an entrance fee.

Great views over the valley of Spoleto. The courtyards are interesting to view. The climb to the Rocca is strenuous, though there is an elevator present.
