Create an itinerary including Rocca Maggiore
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. Take the guesswork out of planning a Assisi vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Short walk through about 170 steps from a small alley and we reached this ancient medieval fort. View was spectacular and you can get a awesome beautiful view of the Assisi town and the Basilica.

  • Funny trip to climb here and the best view at the top of Assisi.
  • An attractive medieval castle with a wonderful view just a few minute walk from the centre of Assisi.
  • Beautiful castle on the hill, steep klim on foor. Inside not to much to see, for 6 euro a bit expensive….
  • I didn't enter the castle but the view from the top of Assisi is awesome
  • Pity it was closed when I attended. The fog below just added to the charm.
