If you go to Fumone castle then bring cash! The little souvenir shops, bar and some retaurants below the castle, and the castle itself do not take credit cards. The cost for a guided tour of the castle is €10 with no reduced priced for...More

You will step back in time when you explore this castle. There were very few tourists, other than school children when we were there in April. We found it very interesting. The view from the top is wonderful!

Went with a local friend who knows the place. Lots of history and lots of things to discover and see in the rooms. Really loved the garden and the view from there.

Wonderful historical place, full of stories to tell, from popes to knights. Magnificent view over the valley (well, it was built there just for commanding the area!)

The castle offers the opportunity to visit the cell where Pope Celestine, the Pope of the Great Refusal mention in Dante's Divine Comedy, was imprisoned and died. You can also enjoy a beautiful panorama over the surrounding countryside.

I went in May and the opening time was merely a suggestion. The castle itself was fine, but nothing too memorable except maybe the wax covered boy that is thought to haunt the castle. The gardens, if better maintained, could be lovely, wiht some great...More
