  • I was a little worried that it was going to be a day and a bit chaotic having regard to the festivities and instead they are very well organized. The characters that have accompanied us in the fable are just fantastic!! Fun and educational for children but manage to make people laugh and to push through a carefree day even the great!! Dear the staff behind the scenes. The ticket price is worth the day. We will definitely return to good season! Special Kudos to the Knight who helped the children to retrieve the precious Broom of the befana!

  • We participated in the animation for the feast of the Epiphany with our 4 children and 7 years. Historical guided tour was very interesting and the Guide David was very good because it involved children during explanations. The next animation in costume was very engaging and informative. The children enjoyed themselves in the shoes of the little Knights and face the trials against orcs and werewolves bears to recover the broom of the Epiphany. The entertainers were real actors who have played their roles with skill engaging. Great Christmas snack with cakes, pastries, biscuits, tea and mulled wine. Magical experience, for both children and adults that we recommend to all.

  • The visit to the castle was full of details and trivia, historical, artistic, geographical, geological, symbolic, esoteric, magico...la guide has been able to capture the attention of visitors for two hours, is not for everyone! Able to transmit his passion for his magnificent and particular Castle. A very pleasant experience to recommend to young and old.
