La Rocca Sforzesca is gigantic in the middle of a small city like Imola. Quite impressive. It is nice to walk around and enjoy. In front you have a place to have l'aperitivo or a late night drink and admire La Rocca.

Beautiful medieval castle. Very imposing and it appeared out-of "nothing" when walking towards it from town. But then a huge disappointed, it is Olympic open after 13.00 h in the weekend. This of course is ridiculous in August.
