Castle Tourist Spot
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. Plan your visit to Rocca Maggiore and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Assisi vacation planner.

  • Assisi is place everyone should visit. Religious and filled with history. Completely renovated and well kept. Relaxing and inspiring
  • Large and pretty ruined fortress. Offers an amazing views from all of its sides.
  • The views alone are worth a visit. Lots of steps, closed in places and climbing. Exhibits give a good sense of Assisi in medieval times. Take a taxi to get there.
  • From here, you will have one of the best view of Assissi and the surrounding zone, although it can be a bit challenging both to get there and to find a quiet place, to make some photos.
  • An old fort in Assisi. Worth a visit to have a perspective of the medieval life.
