#1 of 18 in Things to do in Lerici
A 12th-century castle near the beach, Castello di Lerici once served as a military fortification. The journey here requires a bit of a hike, but you will find the view of the ocean from the top makes it worthwhile. Climb the castle's towers and explore each room. There's also a dinosaur museum inside for all ages. When you’re finished, don't miss the lake near the castle.

  • We are sincerely just from the square up to the entrance. The castle was still closed. Beautiful view.

  • We were visiting on 4/02/2018. The castle is easily reached from the fishing pier via an elevator that leads straight to the Castle Square. The building is well maintained and cared for, we could not get because it was closed. Sore point was the amount of waste along the narrow streets under the Castle. Bottles, cigarette packets, remnants of food packaging etc. ...

  • Though it was closed Saturday morning right I didn't closed. However beautiful landscaping and cleaning all around. There is a lift that takes you to the top and then you can get down like we did along narrow streets. Nice.
