Rocca Maggiore, Assisi
(4.4/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A place a little tiring to achieve, but if time is on your side, it becomes something spectacular. Even sit on the bench and enjoy the scenery that offers front, becomes a moment you'll never forget

  • During our stay in London, we visited Assisi and over to the Church of San Francesco we visited also the Rocca Maggiore: imposing and well maintained, is located in a dominant position overlooking the city and because of that it has a great view of the landscape below. For those who do not like walking you can reach by car; free parking available

  • 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.
