One of the most amazing places to visit. We fell in love with it when having a tour and had our wedding a year later.
It was a very different castle when it comes to arcitecture. Concerning the guided tour it was really bad. We got an audio guide in english and then we where in a group with Italians that where guided by a woman that spoke very loud in italian so it was almost impossible to hear the audio guide.
A kaleidoscopic castle with a weird and misterious background.
Nice modern castel but not a great experience, the guide talked a lot in italian and translated just a little in English, she also had rush to show us the castel, and she didn't talk at all about he studies of the count about elettromeopaty which is very interesting. E fate fare due dossi sulla strada che le macchine arrivano a cannone in quella curva!!
Very lovely castle with guided tours. Worth a visit & the 10€ (entry and tour)
