We were tipped off about the Rocca, as it didn't seem to feature on any of the 'must see' lists for Citta Alta. It appears to be an old fortress, perched on a higher bit of ground, about level with rooftops of surrounding buildings. Not...More

If you were to do one thing in the area, make sure you walk up here to see the views. Walk all around the grounds and get panoramic views that are amazing.

Not crowded, great views, classic fortress, nice atmosphere, near the historic old town square, and has a history museum that is very interesting and no one in it.

Wonderful views greet you upon entering the grounds. The museum is small but well laid out with exhibit descriptions in Italian only. Be sure to walk the perimeter of the walls; you won't be disappointed.

Castle exhibition was not translated into English so could not tell but I do not think any info on this was given. Try the castle itself.
