It is well worth the trek up to the Rocca, a former fort, palace and prison, although there are elevators to help with the trip to the top. From here the views of the Umbrian countryside surrounding Spoleto are stunning. The building has an impressive...More

I can't say much more than the title, really. You need to go there to appreciate the history behind this place. I kept running over to windows to look at the views, which can't have changed much for zillions of years.

If you are walking all the way up to the Duomo, a very short distance is this stunning edifice. Even if you don't want to walk through, take the time to soak in the views and take some great photos. Highly recommended to visit.

The Rocco is a must see Spoleto site. You get a great view from this historic building that served as a jail at one time. If you purchase a Spoleto Pass (10 Euros) you can visit 7 historic sites, plus you can use public transit...More

A must see. I have been in numerous Roccas in Italy and this is the best. Outstanding art works. It was a great rainy day visit.
