The standard tour (2 hours / 2 hours and 1/2) starts by reaching the city center with the convenient escalators, built in 1983. These are contained within the wonderful setting of the ancient Rocca Paolina, a sixteenth-century papal fortress, commissioned by Paul III Farnese.
 

Once you reach the centre, pause for a moment on the panoramic terrace of Piazza Italia, from which you can admire the medieval quarter of St. Peter and, on clear days, the spiritual town of Assisi, which lies at the foot of Mount Subasio .
