  • The castle is well maintained and you can visit a good part. Beautiful view of the Lake, but during our visit there was a bit of rain and fog and saw little. It must be even more beautiful in the spring, with the grounds were well kept and all the roses in bloom

  • This castle was the main home to the famous Dukes of Orsini whose coat of arms and symbol of a bear is visible in nearly every room. It’s survived very well with some sympathetic restoration. It’s rea...  more »
  • The castle is well worth a visit at least once and enjoy a guided tour which by the way is free on Sundays. Tickets cost €8.50 more €1.50 to visit the private apartment with beautiful frescoes by the Zuccari brothers. One feels transported back in time between frescoes, antique furniture and fireplaces, original floors and views of the Lake.

  • just amazing. still not raided by tourists, calm, authentic, and even furnished with mediaeval pieces that take you back in time. the view to the lake from the roof cannot be missed!
  • A wonder place with fascinating views! Been here for a wedding. The perfect place to Wed
  • What a magical castle. Our trip here was made super special because of our guild Melissa. We never normal go on tour guide but as we only had to wait 5mins for it to start it felt like a good idea. Melissa had so much knowledge and love for the castle and Bracciano. Every room is full of wonder that we would have missed had it not been pointed out to us. I Highley recommend asking when the next tour is and also ask is Melissa is taking the tour! You will not be disappointed.
  • Bracciano is an epic lakeside city with one of the most obvious castles in all of Italy, towering over the bustling city that nearly surrounds it.  Bracciano Lake is a volcanic lake, the eighth largest lake in Italy, and surrounded by other cities, waterfalls, and an incredible micro-Tuscany - that is, rolling Roman farm hills packed with farm-to-table restaurants and lovely landscape opportunities. Bracciano's origins are uncertain, but it is suspected that one of the towers of Castello Odescalchi existed before the castle was built to accompany the lonely tower. Santo Stefano Protomartire is a large cathedral near the castle, worth a look after grabbing a cappuccino in one of the many bars along the main street. The appeal of Bracciano is that it isn't spoiled by tourists - it's an authentic Italian town with plenty of Italian shops,a lovely population, and spending your time driving through the surrounding area can't be beat.  It's a dream if you're looking for authentic Italy without the tourists.
  • We attended an unbelievable private function here. The service was amazing. The food was divine! From the cocktail reception in the courtyard to the dinner for 400+ upstairs, service was smooth and food inside was steaming hot and plentiful. We moved to the dungeons for a disco and it was fantastic! If you have a chance, attend an event here!
