  • Get the rock is not very difficult: If you have a car it will take about ten minutes. I don't know if there are coaches that accompany the stranded, but during the summer months there are not, then we've done on foot ... uphill! A grind brutal for those not accustomed to extended hikes (you must take the roads uphill), but we did discover the historic centre of Angera. Once you arrive at Rocca had no time to visit, because the reduced hours. The price per ticket, according to me is disproportionate to what it offers: 9.50 € per person without a guide or audio guide. Once past the Ticket Office welcomes the medieval garden with a breathtaking view of the Lake and the town of Arona. Inside the fortress is kept very well (recently refurbished to a famous wedding Borromeo) and offers a visit of various rooms and salons, narrated briefly by individual signs at the entrance. The visit is also open to the upper floors (beware of steep wooden stairs) where the view will become almost 360 degrees. In addition to visiting the various rooms, the fortress also offers entry to the doll and Toy Museum which can be interesting. Recommend a visit early in the morning, perhaps with tickets already in hand to jump a queue and a little guide made by itself, because there is nothing like this on the site.

  • Very beautiful castle including a puppet museum. Definitely worth a visit. :) For 10€ you will get the possibility to have a perfect sight over the lake and its surroundings.
  • Doll & Toy Museum is AWESOME. My daughter, age 6, and I had a great experience walking through the castle (which is also beautiful). Dolls and toys from all over the world, including their histories. We could well have spent all day at the castle and on the grounds. Unforgettable experience.
  • A fortress turned into a doll museum...but the view of the Lake Maggiore from it is amazing!!
  • A fort in nice condition offering magnificent views over the lake.
  • Stunning views and beautiful Castle
