It's a bit of a climb. I could be mean and state that charging folk €2.50 to climb some steps is a bit cheeky but I guess it's clean and it's safe, and that doesn't pay for itself. Stunning views of a lovely part of...More

The old castle is not in the best shape considering the tourist visit, but it offers some of the best views at the Lake Trasimeno and Passignano. It is not a difficult climb, even during the hot summer day and it is worth the effort....More

Definitely a ‘must see’. There are amazing views from the Rocca over Lake Trasimeno, Passignano and the surrounding countryside and so for artists and photographers it is a must. Families will really enjoy the visit too. Kids love castles and ours really enjoyed exploring. It...More

What a lovely part of this beautiful lake. Lots of little cafes, a few shops and plenty of places to just sit and relax - all with a water view.

it's a good spot to observe the surroundings. It offers a nice panorama over the lake and the old town of Passignano. A good stop while you wait for the ship to visit Isola Maggiore

Passignano is one of the lake's larger towns, steeped in history. Rather poignant memorial to the town's WW2 bombing victims is worth a look

Despite the 36 degree temperature the effort it took to climb to the top of Rocca was well worth it! Apparently we had just missed a race during which the historical canoes are carried to the top! It is not actually the far to tha...More

The top of Passignano and the highest building of Centro Storico, the old town. You have to pay like €2-2,50 for entrance, but the view is worth it. Place to enjoy your Italian holidays. Also there is a bar where you can buy soft drinks...More
