  • The Rocca maggiore is a typical medieval military construction. The sore point is that everything was closed even though the sign said that it was open. You can see The underlying pitch still a sin. views of Assisi superb (and free!).

  • I enjoyed the trip to this place. The only thing is it is not publicised enough as an activity. The opening hours are unclear. The trek up is worth the view.  more »

  • The views here are spectacular. I've seen several places in Italy but Assisi was always so special to me because it's a pleasant surprise and every bit as beautiful as Tuscany.
  • This is a must visit when you are at Assisi. Go to the top of the castle to appreciate the amazing beauty of Assisi. The castle itself is a beauty.
  • Beautiful vistas, small but interesting museum consisting mainly of costumes and weapons from the middle ages, as well as pictures from reenactments.
  • Great castle. Buy the cheaper ticket and see everything in the castle. The more expensive ticket is for an other location as well. The castle has great views.
  • The views are insanely beautiful, and the fortress itself is interesting. The site could have better information. It starts out well with a couple of large intimation panels, but that's about it.
