Impressive and photogenic but . . . . . . .
Feb 2020
. . . . . you'll be disappointed that you can't get inside. Reason? It is still in use, it appears, as soldiers with weapons were on patrol nearby. It's a very pleasant experience to walk round and admire the outside though.

Amazing fort

Amazing fort, I wish we could have gone inside. Spent about an hour walking around the outside and the surrounding area. Well worth a visit

A magnificent fortress
Nov 2019
The past three times when the cruise ship docked at this port, I can see this magnificent fortress in front of us but we went to Rome.This time we decided to spend time in town to explore. Although we can't go in, but I was satisfied to walk around outside and snapped a few good photos and a few more from the higher angle from the cruise ship deck 16. Happy Travelling!

Dominating the port area of the town

Imposing old stone fort building that is well maintained externally. The 4 round turrets? are attractive symetry for the old structure. Not much inside but photogenic from outside.

Outside only

Great views of this from the walkway above the historic wall. The fortress is fairly spectacular from the outside but is large empty space inside.

Historical Fortress
Oct 2019 • Couples
Overlooking the port area, this fort is worth a look. I was a bit disappointed you could not enter the interior of the fort, but it appears to still be an active military facility.

Closed history

This very historic fort is large and commands a magnificent position over the sea and harbour of Civitavecchia. It is worth a visit, but when we got there all we could do was walk around the outside as it was shut to visitors with little evidence as to why.

Beautiful building from the outside - take the walk
Nov 2018
I stay at La Marina B & B with a view of Michaelangelo Fortress from the balcony. It's a beautiful building but really, all you do is walk around it. Continue beyond for an interesting walk where you will see monuments, local fishing boats and if you're really lucky you can watch a kindly gentleman repair his fishing nets. It's really quite an art.

Entwined in this ancient Michelangelo castle is the name Da Vinci! How much more can one want? The structure is in excellent state and there is a very pleasant walk close to the fortress
