  • My fiancee and I stayed at this beautiful rocca. After a morning and lunch on the shores of Lake trasimeno, we decided to visit the fortress. Switching from palazzo duca della Corgna, and through a long walkway leads to the fortress. The entrance fee was €8 for both attractions. The Palace has beautiful painted ceilings, but does not contain anything other than a few medieval Chair. However was an exhibition on Picasso. The rock we arrive after this long walkway with arrow slits on the Lake very suggestive. Beautiful piazza D'Armi and walkways safe enough along the walls. All the towers, including the donjon are most impressive and the view is unique. Please note, the inner courtyard can be accessed for free, and you can find a bar with a few chairs, beautiful olive trees to shade. The parade was staged an outdoor cinema, which perhaps disfigures the historicity of the place, but a nice idea anyway.

  • A magnificent building very imposing and well maintained. A theater is located inside the city walls. Beautiful olive trees, which some very old, surround him on the hill which goes down to the edge of the Lake.

  • You access this imposing medieval fortress from the palazzo ducale through a corridor between the walls. As soon as you step outside the view is gorgeous and you can make the rounds of all the paths and climb the tower. A really nice interesting experience that makes you relive the past.

  • Great view and great panorama. Also a bar into the fortress.
  • Huge medieval fortress with a open air theatre (in the summer) and snack bar that offers drinks and food. Slightly expensive (5€ per adult) entrance fee for climbing the fortress walls, so we ended up not getting the full tour.
  • Nice Castle maintained in perfect order. The small museum at the entrance with Etruscan and original frescoes. Maintower quite impressive.

  • A wonder totally unknown to most people. Absolutely worth visiting as soon as you have an hour to spare on a sunny day. The price of € 4 for students makes it really a must.

  • Discovered by chance during a visit in Castiglione del lago. The walls have been preserved very well and you can ride for inside and enjoy a wonderful view over the Lake below. Inside there is a courtyard found in which are held various events. Very impressive the long narrow hallway which connects the Palazzo della Corgna alla rocca.
