After visiting the beautiful churches and streets of Assisi, kids can be a bit tired and perhaps (let's admit it) a bit bored. So from the square in fron of Santa Chiara, we pointed the Rocca and proposed to visit it. When they saw it at the top of the hill where Assisi is built, the first reaction was: "Up there? So far? No way!", but we made it up there and the reward was amazing. The Rocca has beautiful views and each corner has something fascinating for kids. But the best attracion was the 105 metres long tunnel connecting the main building with the hexagonal tower. This long passage excited our kids, who felt like being in the Middle Ages and had a strong sense of adventure. Not to mention the fantastic view from the top of the tower: the best view on the Valle Umbra and the mountains behind Assisi. Overall, a great experience for the entire family, which prepared us for the lunch at the Trattoria da Erminio, just a few steps down for the Rocca.
PS: not suitable for people with problems at walking, there's plenty of stairs to climb and no elevator. Also, there are no toilets, which is a pity for such a fantastic location and can be a problem for people with young childen or babies.
