The oldest part of the Lombard castle of Venafro, in the form of remaining of an internal, narrow staircase, brings you back to the 6th century, perfectly flowing with the events of local Roman history, which culminated with the collapse of the Western empire about...More

This castle is filled with beautiful art. When we visited it it had both Renaissance art, forms of art painted on walls that I had not seen anywhere else in Italy, and a modern art display. The town of Venafro is a hidden gem.

Since I was the only tourist there, I have a private tour of Castello Pandone Venafro. It's well worth the visit if you're in Venafro. However, since every medieval Italian town has a castle. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.
