“Rocca Maggiore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Steep walk but well worth it. Very quiet, interesting displays and unsurpassed views of Umbria. Narrow winding stairs take you to yet another interesting spot but the 105 m walk along the interior corridor to the tower is fantastic.

“The view is magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Not for the faint of heart, their is a lot of stairs.
It's a good hike up the hill, but you can get a taxi and they will call a taxi for you when your done. The view of Umbria is breathtaking.

“Enjoy the view but dont waste money going in”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We paid as a family 13eur to get in. The access was very limited, to say the least. There is absolutely nothing inside. Nothing, you could not climb the towers, and the only one you could was facing the back, so your view was limited to bush-covered hills, not the town. How they can even charge money to go in is beyond me.

“A Long Way to the Top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

This fortress is at the very top of Assisi, it is a long walk if you are starting at the base of the city but the views of the surrounding area are fabulous. I suggest you catch the bus as far as it goes then walk the rest of the way, wish I had done that. If it is a very hot day, have water with you and just take your time.
