Rocca Maggiore, Assisi

4.3
Look over the town of Assisi from Rocca Maggiore, a 12th-century castle fortress. Climb the hill to the castle, which appears ruined, but still has two towers open that offer panoramic views. To the west lies the town, and to the east are the mountains of Umbria, part of the strategic defense of this fortress.

  • We visited the fortress from the outside because inside there is a museum that didn't want to see at that moment. From the outside, however, is offered a beautiful view from the top of Assisi.

  • The climb is a record 15-minute uphill walk on a trail of stones to get to heaven there is no entrance fee costs 10 euros, while for students there is a reduction 6 euro. Inside it's sheet and empty but I highly recommend it for a dive in the past

  • It is important to know to warn what were medieval walled cities which could be at war with their neighbours. Wars that disrupted harvests or religious ceremonies. It is not sufficiently careful.

  • An enlighten leader spent his early years here to get an education.....wrote the first natural history book......travelling reminds me of the quote.... from WINNIE THE POOH - A A Milne: 'We didn't realise we were making memories, We just knew we were having fun!'
  • A very special place to visit. It’s been very well taken care of and stands as a importent part of the history of both Assisi and Umbria.
  • Amazing panoramic view . The walk isn't so hard. You can visit the castle buying the ticket.
  • Currently studying abroad in Italy. Came here after a nice lunch with class, great views of the city! Go there!
  • Buetiful view from the top with a cool rich history museum in it. Kinda sucks fee is 6 euro
