This building used to be a fortress, then a prison, and now it houses a museum of the Lombard history in Spoleto. Some very interesting artifacts, well-explained, and no crowds. They could do a better job of maintaining their stock of explanatory texts in each room. I also wish they had some information or photos showing what it was like... More

A beautiful place with excelent service and helpful people. Not far from Spoletto, still in the middle of nature, in a no more lived but comfortizide village,equipped with everithing you need in your appartement and more. Comfortable, homelike rooms, piscine usable only in hot days - could be cared a little bit more.

The hike to this remarkable building is worthwhile on its own. Spoleto is so lovely from many vantages. Besides, along the way are other special sites, including the Roman house and the Duomo. However, you can also arrive via escalator. La Rocca has served many masters from this highest point in the town since being built in the 1300's as... More

Waited some time in a chaotic line only to find out that they don't accept credit cards. We didn't have enough cash for two so we didn't enter. The view from the castle was very nice.

We weren't able to visit all the rooms on show due to maintenance. Great views of the surrounding area from the top. Find the elevators to avoid the steep climb on foot.

After a litlle climb, you can admire this impressive "Rocca", which has been called after a Cardinal, Albornozio, who ordered to built it before the Popes' return in Italy, after their hexile. It's massive because the power of the Vatican had to be massive once again. Inside, you'll find a museum which testimonies Lombards' dominion over Spoleto, two large courtyards... More

Well restored castle, with frescos and paintings. Impressive architecture and an amazing view of Spoleto from high above the town. A bit of a walk to get there but really worth it

The first is the magnificent views on the way. The second is the well told story of Spoleto, accompanied by some ancient relics. The third is the story of the building, once a fortress, than a governor house, and later a prison. This is not a huge museum, and the price (7.20) is not cheap, but still worth avidity if... More

You can get to la Rocca by lift but if you are feeling energetic then walk up the hill. Great views of the surrounding area and interesting to see the museum and murals
