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

This place is the must see in Spoleto, You either can go up there on foot or escalator. It is worth a visit

It's big, it's high, it's... maybe a bit too much. They've done a nice job turning it into a museum, but somehow it doesn't feel all that interesting -- most of the rooms look pretty much the same, and while the artifacts are tastefully displayed, there wasn't anything specific that rewarded the time and money spent going there. The best... More

On a recent trip to Spoleto the Rocco became our daily walk. A ancient castle set amongst amazing landscape. . Sadly on one of the days there, graffiti was added to the walls which was disappointing to think there are people who enjoy defacing such a beautiful building. If you walk the Rocca in the morning there is a cafe... More

This used to be a Popes residence and then a prison. It has a museum with some excellent artefacts and set up very well. I was surprised to see some frescos still is pretty good shape. We were given electric assist bikes free of charge from the Spoleto travel information centre and boy did that exceed our expectations!

Be prepared for lots of walking even though there is a good system of escalators that take visitors to the top and lifts that take you up to the Rocca itself. It's not as fascinating as the Rocca Albornoz in Narni but still a splendid and well-maintained castle. La Rocca was completed in 1370, but throughout history it was often... More

Is located at the very top of the city, you can reach it from Piazza Duomo (there is an elevator at the end of Percorso Meccanizzato); intersting museum inside, with old paintings and internal rooms to be visited. You can also appreciate a fantastic landscape of Spoleto from there.
