  • I have to say very nice, a good experience wandering the rooms and see so much history thanks to the guide that we outlined and said (sort of) the various rooms. It was still nice, with some changes more will be even better

  • From the outside it doesn't look that encompasses all the secrets and treasures it contains. We have been able to appreciate it fully, thanks to a guided tour (and free) that leaves every hour: the guide was really well prepared and knew how to dress the information with many historical aspects that are not linked to the period of construction of the master. Beautiful also the Museum located within and that is dedicated to ancient people native to the area and probably coming from Greece. Not to be missed

  • The Fort: the art of Sangallo in the service of the need to defend themselves. Interesting solutions to make the Fort almost unassailable. The Interior is a Museum (National Museum of Agro Falisco) with many examples, especially the contenders ' funeral. Access to the Museum is free (just sign a register) and visits, guided tours only, leave every hour and last an hour ca. Interesting the funeral with some extraordinarily beautiful gold filigree jewelry. Stands out even a skull with a rudimentary dental prothesis in gold (a real bridge of 3 elements, it seems, partly shaped but definitely functional).

  • They have an amazing (and unexpected) collection of artefacts. Well worth spending an hour or so. Lots of good parking very close by.
  • Beautiful historic castle unfortunately has little salt visible, though very interesting .... It might be the most beautiful Museum of the province, instead it is just a simple place to see ... Where if you see it once is more than enough, they don't put news, don't open new rooms ... Once in a while, but rarely bring something that is x a short period ... Then just ... Same routine ever. ... It's a shame ... We hope that sooner or later opened other rooms ....

  • The Fort is definitely worth a visit. It is well preserved and inside you can find a collection of artifacts dating back to the Faleri. Too bad that visiting the Fort in low season there is a guide, but it is only accompanied during the visit (no explanation).

  • This imposing fortress began at the end of ' 400 by Pope Alexander VI Borgia and completed by Julius II della Rovere was designed by great architects, also of military works, Antonio da Sangallo the elder and his grandson namesake the younger. Besides visiting the archaeological museum that is hosted, it is worth to admire it from the outside, especially on the side overlooking the deep and impressive Gorge.

  • Visit that does not disappoint and does not exalt. The Fort is impressive and beautiful to behold but once inside the visit turns out more like a museum than in a typical Castle. Archaeological finds on show (mainly related to Etruscan) are substantial and fairly well described. The visit is free and runs hourly, check your watch and enjoy your trip!
