  • Great museum, amazing view from the top of the tower. Other people wrote that entry was €5. That’s for 3 persons and more. With 2 adults we paid €7 per person. Almost all the writing was in Italian...

  • We got married here last year, the castle and grounds are stunning . The whole process was pretty straight forward and the castle provided the perfect setting for our civil ceremony.
