  • The Castle overlooks the town of Poppi is a structure that can be seen from far away, the small and impressive at the same time. I visited it and jumped right on top of the tower where, inexplicably, I found some bells. Unusual for a tower of a castle which is used for military purposes. There is a indoor climbing very characteristic and you can observe the Council Chamber that is evidently used.

  • We were visiting this castle, she advised the owner of the property where we were staying. A nice surprise, excellently preserved Castle and of course making your visit with audio guide (free) that in an easygoing, the voice of the count Guidi, tells the story of the Manor. Not to be missed.

  • Castello di Poppi has a great history. Loved the prisons which you enter where you really feel the history. Could come right from an episode of GOT!
  • Great cafe right next to the castle and good views all around. A glass of wine at the castle is 1.5 euro
  • You should visit it. Very nice place with fantastic views...

  • Is the "Castle" of Casentino. Stands out on top of a hill with its typical Guelph merlons and Tower. Dating back to 1,200 and is perfectly preserved. It was the residence of the counts Guidi, today its interior houses the library Rilliana, rich of medieval manuscripts, and a chapel which houses frescoes attributed to Taddeo Gaddi. The village of Poppi lies within the walls, perfectly preserved, and is considered among the most beautiful in Italy
