  • Let me start by saying that we have visited many castles in Northern Italy and had never considered the castello dei Vicari, a few kilometers from home, and were wrong because the visit proved a pleasant surprise. The small village very pleasant clean and well cared for. The surprise the grandeur and Majesty of the Castle, the steps leading to the entrance adorned with fragrant Rosemary. The visit to the Castle very exhaustive helped by interactive panels which make you know the history of the Vicariate. Notable visits to prisons and dungeons. Also worth a visit for the view which can be enjoyed from the outside on a clear day you can see even the sea. Praise for the Organization and the kindness of the girl at the ticket office

  • On a sweltering August day I decided to pay a visit to this castle after having heard so much about. I must say that even within the heat you feel. At the ticket office before flaw: it is not possible to pay by credit card: unacceptable in 2017! Scraped together the money for the ticket €4, begins my visit! In the first stanza tells the story of the Castle. A touch screen allows you to retrace every period by clicking on various tabs. Among all living areas all what I liked most is the Peter Leopold in which, through a system of projection, the frescoes on the walls are rebuilt with a beautiful musical accompaniment. Continuing the visit we can see that in every room there is always something interactive. In the Hall of the vicar and prisons, just ring a Bell in order to operate a video. Outside you can admire a beautiful Tuscan landscape from the terrace surrounding the Castle. Recommended!

  • Very nice, interactive (multimedia) museum. It was a big surprise to see that this castle was a museum. Very friendly owner who knew us even more to tell.

  • Amazing views of the country side. Highly recommend a walk around the Castello and enjoy the views
  • Very rude personnel. Castle definitely worth seeing from the outside, not inside
  • Interesting history.
  • In the Centre of the village of lari stands the massive silhouette of the castle of the Vicar, already documented in the early Middle Ages, although the present structure is from the first half of the ' 600. Thanks to its dominant position over the Valdarno it was an important military garrison of the Pisan Republic until it was conquered by Florence in 1406. The castle is defended by a wall with three gates: Porta Fiorentina and Porta Pisana and Volterrana gate; the latter was the main way of access to the village and was equipped with a drawbridge, eliminated then in 1798. Landscape from the castle's splendid: "I came to Lari and his fortress showed vast country, the nicest part of Tuscany", said the Grand Duke of Tuscany Leopold II when he visited this country.

  • Beautiful construction perfectly preserved and accessible in the Centre of the beautiful village of Lari strategic position on the Arno plain that is appreciated so astounding from wall Sin for non-Museum of interiors, but the visit to the Castle and still interesting and properly documented. Free access gave the space a significance from sociability to visit. Only in a surprising context
