Unfortunately, the museum was closed for lunch when we visited. We were able to walk across the picturesque drawbridge that leads into the courtyard. You enter a small courtyard that leads to a more structured and large courtyard. It is an imposing fortress at the...More

The museum is set in a lovely ancient village. It’s easy to walk through and gives a great detail of the area. The whole village is almost a living museum. It’s a setting within a setting. Take time to visit the church too. The whole...More

It costs 5euro but it's worth a look. Large enough for a decent stroll and the towers offer a great view. The living quarters are very interesting. There is a gallery of paintings as well. There are a lot of stairs, the higher you go...More

Poorly maintained, not much to see inside. Not worth the 5 Euros charge. Photos from outside is pretty amazing though (and that is free)

The castle was charming and very good value, The towers had excellent panoramic views from the un-glazed. windows. Enjoyed the extensive Italian art on display. The traditional kitchen and laundry room ere fascinating. The prison had graffitti about 400 years old.

This is the most fascinating, unaffected, cheap museum I have yet visited in Italy. For 5E entry, you are free to explore the secret passageways, artwork, traditionally furnished rooms, and amazing lookouts in this fort. It's a rarity in Italy to not have sentries watching...More
