    I'll be biased, it's my country. But excavations of Castelseprio are plunged into a wonderful forest that draws a beautiful natural setting. The historical remains? Some ruins that, about the history and you will be amazed and some interesting guarded Museum, like millions of other places. What makes the excavations of Castelseprio unique? The context in which they are inserted. To try in autumn! Stunning woodland colors, especially at dusk.

    I visited the ruins of Castelseprio today! The Park I was pleasantly surprised, the visit inspired me and it was nice for once taking time out on the culture! I highly recommend visiting! It costs nothing but we must protect our treasures!

    The archaeological site of Castelseprio is a complex of Roman and medieval ruins in the Woods. Unfortunately, while fascinating, should be kept better. The grass is high everywhere and there is nothing which makes the most of the site. Nice Museum with artifacts associated with the zone lifting a bit on the site level. PS: not to be confused with the monastery, very nice and very interesting, just on the other side of the Hill!

  • Castelseprio was built when Milan became capital of the Western half of the Roman empire. Duke Ottone Visconti destroyed it in 1287 and forbade to ever rebuild it. An interesting example of non-classical archaeology. Admission is for free.
  • Beautiful place
  • Well maintained Park, although without guides, only a couple of keepers. The location of the ruins is interesting, though a bit clearer signs would enhance the visit. Free admission.
