I missed going into the actual Rocca Maggiore, but getting to the top of Assisi was worth every step! Most gorgeous view I've ever seen in my life. Of course I overheard many a "fastidioso" and "uffa's", but the hardest things to reach are the most rewarding! (It wasn't even that hard, just a little time consuming. Probably took me about 1.5 hours from San Francesco? I wasn't keeping track though; and I stopped a lot to take pictures of course.)

Most visitors to Assisi don't make the dauting climb to the fortress above the town, but they are missing out on a secret hidden in plain sight. This fourteenth century castle is only partly restored, and has tunnels, towers, and turrets galore (fun for kids and grown-ups to explore). Be sure you make it to the “highest room of the tallest tower” for the best photos of your holiday.
