  • The hike up from Assisi is not hard if you take your time and enjoy breathtaking views. Wonderful place to take memorable pictures. Although the tour is so so this expedition is well worth it and cost...  more »
  • From the outside you can see the walls still intact which, in their long journey, connect the rocca maggiore at the slower speed and dominate the Hill.

  • 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.
