  • Was very disappointed as had to see fort from outside only. Arrived at 1pm to be told it opened at 2. Arrived at 2.30 to be told it opened at 3pm. I got the impression they didn't want us to go in. We...  more »

  • 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!
