Rocca Maggiore, Assisi

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.

  • Stunning place and a great chunk of history. Very well preserved, it's not a ruin but a proper fortress. Entrance is paid, but a nice surprise: payment by card is accepted.

Just beside the castle there is a bar with tables outside, a good spot to catch a breath after getting up the hill, there is also a loo available. Beautiful views from up there, I loved it.
  • Very nice streets around and an amazing view on the landscape around , not too many tourists which let's you anjoy to walk around
