  • A wonderful place to enjoy the view of the sea and the warm sun of a beautiful island. An ancient site, particular and fascinating. To visit!

  • It's worth visiting the Castle, beautiful and scenic location. Advice to walk even though there is a lift to get up. Very beautiful ruins of the Church and various terraced Gardens within the walls of the Castle. There is a bar which was closed when we were there.

  • The history of this castle is lost over the centuries, its walls could tell the vicissitudes over the centuries. However today the castle is privately owned, as I understand it, the entrance fee is used to maintain the entire complex that besides the main body is also made of the prisons. A complete tour will take at least half a day, so get organized. Now it is reached via a footpath that connects it to the town center

  • So beautiful , especially towards the sun set and in spring. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed , would have been fantastic to have a wine and this view. You can take the elevator up and walk down for most of the time.or you just take the tour the other way round and walk it up. You get rewarded with great views everywhere . Room for improvement is definilty when it comes to presenting the historical facts : maybe there is some stories around the castle that can be told instead of just presenting the dates ?
  • A beautiful spot to get a bird's-eye view. Make sure you have good customer shoes and are able to climb many stairs
  • The castle provides a circlular route through its various attractions. The restaurant was closed when we were there in April and it felt like a fair bit of stuff wasn't on full display. The torture room has graphic illustrations and isn't appropriate for under 13 years I think. Best looking seagull I ever saw and I see many living on the coast back home in a city with loose bins.
  • We were there in February so off season and all the cafés were closed and they were doing maintenance work, however, it was fantastic! The castle reminded me of Mount Saint Michael but without all the commercialism. You can take the elevator up and explore from there. There is a lot to see since the castle changed hands a lot and functions, it was a monastery too. So if you up to walki and want to see beautiful views and learn a thing or two, this is your place.
  • Wonderful castle on Ischia. Very interesting place to visit on a beautiful island.
