Unique Sightseeing

Does anyone have any reviews on "Rocca" or 'The Clock Tower" listed in the "Things to Do " section?

The Rocca is the old castle at the top of the town, climb up to it for there are great views over the town and surrounding countryside from the ramparts. Many Tuscan hill towns have a rocca, they were very important for defensive purposes when the towns were being fought over by the various powerful cities/states. Now the clock tower I think is one of several particularly impressive towers that loom over the piazza duomo. Despite the crowds, San Gim is an interesting place and understandably popular.
