  • My girlfriend and I visited the castle of Gropparello in December 2016, maybe a little different than usual, but probably the best choice. The castle itself is charming and quaint, the Guide also gave information to 360° degrees on the history of the building and its surroundings. Only towards the middle of the tour, finally revealed himself to be the owner and let itself go to other stories, which made the experience even more curious and interesting. Nice opportunity, informative and fun, which made us want to come back to some of the other initiatives taking place at the Castle ... for example the murder mystery dinner.

  • We were fortunate to be in a few people to conduct a guided tour and enjoying so "intimate" atmosphere of the Castle and landscape surrounding it. Luck was double as the guide was the same owner of the Castle so capable, intelligent and curious there told the story, characteristics and curiosity. It was a unique experience that has enriched me and save with great pleasure. A big thank you!
