  • Under the Visconti Castle every year you can relive the middle ages .... for a long time we visited Castell'Arquato just to relive the story!!! Unfortunately the reenactment performed in that area, well placed at the foot of the rock, it is no longer so attractive having limited the demonstration! Too bad ... anyway just to see the rock makes you go back in time ... Is really fantastic .... need some funds to revive this place!!! You can't miss this show!

  • The fortress outside is really beautiful. The Interior is pretty poor unfortunately, there is virtually nothing inside, however, coming on top of the tower you can admire nothing short of breathtaking ... or rather, I suppose it is in a nice clear day because alas, when we went there myself and my partner, was a gray day. At any rate, very nice view of the walls and what remains inside them from above.

  • We approached the entrance to undecided whether to go because cold, look at €5 or €4 ticket costs reduced. The moment when we decide whether to enter or not, we want to make a picture of the scenery but check the ticket Lady saying that you can't photograph if you don't buy a ticket! Due to her rudeness we checked out and lost 4 customers, perhaps the only ones of the day! Kindness to go!!! Photo absent because prohibited!

  • Entrance for tower is 5€. Place is beautiful!
  • I would definitely recommend a visit to the fortress. Thanks to a route split level you can reach the top where you can enjoy a beautiful view. Also there are different rooms on different floors, where you can admire the medieval weapons, read the history of the country and witness an interesting video!

  • Splendid example of Rocca, well maintained and well re-used. Full of great halls and many steps. But on the top the view is phenomenal. As for the exhibition, the descriptions are good, but you can do more. A nice tour, or even just an audioguide would be desirable.

  • Great location ... the country is a medieval gem, for all fans of history and not, it seems to follow the story through every alley ... the rock is great, from the top you can enjoy the view of those Territories dominated by the Visconti, not to be missed if you are in the area, as a place to visit!
