  • 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.
