Follow in the footsteps of Saint Francis himself on this Assisi sightseeing tour. With round-trip transportation from your Assisi or Santa Maria degli Angeli hotel included, explore Assisi with ease by motorized tuk tuk. Listen as your guide shares the history of top attractions like the St Clare Basilica, the medieval Piazza del Comune, and the 12th-century Cathedral of San Rufino, and enjoy fine views over the vineyards.

Short walk through about 170 steps from a small alley and we reached this ancient medieval fort. View was spectacular and you can get a awesome beautiful view of the Assisi town and the Basilica.

Just hiked up to the fort today, hoping to catch the sunset. We got to the entrance of the fort at around 4:15 but it was already closed. As mentioned in some other reviews though, even if you don’t enter the fort, the view is absolutely gorgeous, not only of Assisi but of the hills of Umbria. Highly recommended and offers a pleasant change from only exploring the historical town side of Assisi.

It is a climb up to the fort, but the views make it worthwhile. The fort itself is ok- not much to see inside, save a few weapons and suits of armor. Do be aware that to reach the top you ascend a small spiral staircase. It makes coming and going a bit of a challenge, but you do get a great feel for what life was like inside the walls.

From the Rocca, you have a great view of Assisi, especially of the Basilico di San Francesco. You can also go into the Rocca, but we did not, as we have seen many castles in many countries and they are quite similar, espcially the ones that were built primaritly for their strategoc location / for military purposes. If you don't have much time you can afford to skip this one.

We had been to Assisi 13 years ago and found this castle then. No company owned it and we found it open and walked to the the very tallest turret for the view. This time a company owns it and they charge 6 Euro to go inside. Only a small portion of the castle is now open to visitors but you can still walk up to one of the other turrets for the amazing view. Not the tallest one but you still get the view!
