  • Memorable stay in 68' when it had a youth hostel on the roof.

  • Beautiful castle with sea views of the coast. To reach it you must climb the steps that lead at the top. The castle also has a lift for older people. It is located right overlooking the sea of ​​Liguria, in the center of Lerici.
  • Very nice and interesting, built in 1152 and terminated after 4 centuries. From the top you can enjoy a wonderful view over the Gulf of poets. Take the elevator or walk among the charming alleys.

  • From above one can see the whole Bay. These days it houses an exhibition of paintings, extended in all premises. We didn't pay anything. To climb to the base of the castle there is a convenient elevator.
