This castle is visible almost from everywhere in Lerici and it dominates the village. I recommend to go up walking from the harbour (or taking the lift inside the tunnel just at the end of the harbour) and coming back arriving in Lerici centre. When...More

Perched on an outcrop overlooking the town of Lerici, but of a steep climb at times but well worth the effort. Please remember it sometimes is closed from 1.00 pm so check before you set off.

Taking a walk around Lerici Castle, image and poetry, full of facination and vibrant colours, admiring in the castle the masterpieces by contemporary painters; the castle is really nice, with view to the gulf of the Poets; now my mind wanders through the hidden tunnels...More

For me also this has very treasured memories from 1953 when my younger brother and I were two of a YHA group of 12, of various nationalities. I do not think that I could make the journey up and down all those steps more than...More

We were surprised to see the castle open, and relieved for my knees that there is a lift in the tunnel nearby so I could avoid several flights. There was a gallery open at the time, some rooms were being used for that, we were...More

Walked to the castle with 2 four-year old kids. It was a fun walk, with a few challenging sections for little kids. We were able to make it to the base section (not the towers). Some great views. Was hoping this might occupy a few...More
