Rocca Maggiore, Assisi

4.3
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.

  • It was well worth the climb up through the town to get to Rocca Maggiore. It was amazing how far into the distance we could see from the top and we were able to get a good photo looking down onto the ...  more »
  • The Rocca Maggiore consists of ancient fort situated on the top of a hill. It is well preserved, considering it was rebuilt in 1356, and from there one can enjoy the most beautiful landscapes I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. I strongly recommend going on foot, even being a relatively long walk by the hillside, and, once there, visit each Corner, climb in each tower. It is, in my opinion, the icing on the cake in Assisi. HINT: Whether you are arriving or leaving, take a walk in the outdoor area of the fort. The scenery is breathtaking.
