  • four old stones of a castle. hard to get to if you don't drive it without a rest stop. After a nice stair climbing your best bet is the beautiful view of the sea. but also that you can admire elsewhere without all the hassle to get there. just to say that you have pushed popular antiquity

  • We climbed to the castle from Maiori town centre and were pleased that we'd take a water bottle to refill at the fountains we passed on our way. The curator spoke enough English to explain the signifi...  more »
  • Beautiful rando... many markets... longer than the Limoni trail... but safe... It's worth the trip

  • So my only thing to tell you before this review is consider the time you go as between 1-3 I believe he closes the castle for a nap. Another Google review has graciously granted this sight one star because of his knowledge of opening times which seems unfair. Another important thing is to consider the number of steps, according to locals it's around 1000 steps. I'm nearing my 30s and I'm pretty unfit so I decided to stop a few times. Luckily there are plenty of places to sit down and enjoy the view. In the castle itself you'll be greeted by an older gentleman. He doesn't speak really any English but he makes an effort and considering the language barrier he was lovely and really showed us around really enthusiastically. We took a few selfys with him and he showed us some of the sights. We paid €10 for this but it's probably the best €10s spent. Cool place clearly untouched and historic. Worth the visit even if the climb was pretty tough for me.
  • There's no possibility to get in there. Near the gate sits half naked old man and says "no visit- bye". Don't go there - you will only loose your time.
  • Wonderful view . Lot of green mountains with old buildings around . Lot of upstairs walking - pay attention.
  • Worth the hike to the top for the view and the guy who shows you around - there are a lot of steps but places to stop on the way. Open 8-12.30 then 3-6ish if you want to look around
  • You can arrive by car as there is a paved road that arrives at the base of the Castle and there are some stairs for entry. Very nice it is to walk with a trail two kilometres (done almost exclusively by stairs). The place is very impressive and offers a good view of Maiori but also for Ravello and the rest of the coast.
