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.

A nice old castle with a great view of the city from the top. This is a nice place to visit, and the entrance fee is low. Some of the castles interior is off limits.

The castle is a great place to see the views of Desenzano. Apart from that, it is not worth the 3 euros entrance fee. There is absolutely nothing to see, and what there is, is only in Italian. We were quite disappointed with the castle....More

This is a stunner of a castle set on the lake shore, huge and with its own harbour. It is spread over a large area and about four floors, with great views if you climb the metal spiral staircase to the top. You can walk...More

Not so much to see walking around the castle itself but the views from the top of the bell tower make it worth the visit alone.

Roughly a 5 minute walk from the lakefront up a steep hill, the castle offers great views of the lake and desenzano. There was an ongoing tour when we visited but we didnt stay too long. As great as the views are, alternatively the castle...More

We enjoyed our visit to the castle and can't understand the comments about it being hard to find - it is a very obvious feature at the top of the town, just walk towards it! We might have been lucky but the route we took...More
