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.

  • I was at a conference about the Templars of my friend Prof Calzolari, but alas I thought takes place in the outdoor terrace and lieu in that cramped little room wooden hot even though the Windows were open! The beauty of the night view from the Castle (pictured) was ruined by the suffocating heat and noise of the public making noise waved brochures! Unfortunately I would recommend your path at night, illuminating the most, as the red carpet x indicate it is enough. Got to the terrace were missing signs or posters. SHAMEFUL for someone like me who does the rapporteur too every once in a while and think that was also attended by the Mayor ... Finally arrived almost at the destination I had to ask how in silents to the keeper that was closed by a glass door in the Museum besides I have to announce that it will close because it seems they have more money to do maintenance. What a pity!

  • The view from the top of the castle is beautiful and you can sea the sun going down behind Porto Venere. If you go there when there is an exposition go to see it!  more »

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