Views are good but so is the view from almost everywhere around. The interior of the castle was a bit of a disappointment. Yes a historical building but really not worth going out of your way to see.

There is a great view from the castle but to be honest you can get pretty much the same view from outside. Was a bit underwhelmed by the interior of the castle- was in and out in 5 minutes

Something different to try around Desenzano, lovely views from the top, very inexpensive and worth looking at the museum. Only down side was it was very steep hill walking up.

It is well worth the climb to visit this castle as the view you get over Disenzano and the South part of the lake makes it worthwhile.
