  • If you change to Bolsena I recommend to visit this castle ... Inside are often used as an underground Museum and an aquarium. You can visit the towers walking on the perimeter and from there you can enjoy a breathtaking view. The ticket price seems you bypass between 5 and 7 euros.

  • Little castle but well kept the ticket contained in the price within a museum on the territory around the Lake and the history of artifacts found there is also an aquarium down in the basement, you can climb the tower and do the walk around the perimeter superior, I mean a nice diversion which involves half a day especially in good weather, a person at reception courteous and professionally prepared in the territory that exposes content and informs correctly about the beauty of this side of Tuscia and of its suggestive Lake.

  • We visited the castle in the morning of Saturday, February 17. The only cost €5 you can visit:-visit of the two floors of the historical museum with finds from the bronze age to the Roman Empire found on the territory. -visit the towers with lake view-visit the small but fascinating aquarium with specimens of fauna of the Lake and some exotic specimens. To underline the kindness, helpfulness and professionalism of the Lady at the ticket.

  • An interesting combination of a castle (with amazing views of the city) a small museum and a very interesting aquarium in the castle basement. We took a chance on it existing disappointment but... the aquarium is very nicely executed in the basement of the castle and the views are well worth the visit. This is especially true with young kids looking for something different.
  • beautiful town on the lake , castle looks great at night , good small bars near the castle
  • nice view over bolsena, interesting museum!
  • La rocca Monaldeschi della Cervara Bolsena Lake territorial Museum, interesting for framing the Lake and offering some evidence of material culture. The Museum is spread over three floors of the building: entrance floor plastic, through archaeological and educational panels, are developed with detailed sections on the formation of the volcanic lake basin, prehistory, early history and the Etruscan phase until the Roman conquest. The central part of this plan consists of iron age finds recovered within the town of the "Big Dipper", found submerged at the eastern shore of Lake Bolsena in 1959. The upper floor is entirely devoted to finds from excavations of Etruscan-Roman Volsinii. The lower level is shown on the period from the middle ages to the present day. In this plan the exhibition opens with the splendid medieval and Renaissance ceramics found in the Tower maggiore della Rocca butto and continues with the presentation of folkloric aspects (folk traditions and holy days), with particular about the work of fishermen, illustrated through exhibits of objects, tools and information panels of fishing techniques and natural environment of the Lake and fish. In the courtyard there is a lapidary displaying many macaws and funerary stones from Roman times. The Bolsena Lake territorial Museum, as well as a tourist attraction, is also a scientific research centre and a production site and cultural socialization. From the ramparts of the fortress, finally, you can enjoy a magnificent view extending over the entire Lake and the ruins of the Etruscan-Roman Volsinii, a short distance from the Museum.

  • history of Bolsena. Inside (5 euros to enter) as well as small artefacts found in Bolsena, there is a beautiful freshwater aquarium with over 30 different fish. Very nice view of the city from above, the towers of the Castle. Recommended!!
