  • Beautiful castle. Sin is anti disabled. Full of stairs, no lift and no elevator. But above all, seeing a visitor in wheelchair, although it does not pay the ticket, they might warn him that can only see the entrance ... What nonsense! In a group of 5 people we had to visit in turn, as we had paid for the ticket, not to just leave the disabled. Absurd.

  • Very intersting castle and self guided tour. ! The views from the castle are spectatular! Well worth taking the time to visit!  more »
  • Because dreams, because when you get there, follow the road ..., follow a pretty sight, almost Scottish, with light and shadow, by month et time. of the day, but what shocked me, the whole country is a castle, that is! What is "Vassallo, Vavasour et Valvassino", and everything makes you live NOW. The chapel of mercy, you turn around and there he is sovereign! The Castle!!! Here too there were counts Guidi, affectionately called the count Thor, last of the heirs, but his "Castle" does not remember your. Tourists, Council, external ride between rue and landscape, relax in the rooms of the count. A one-eye to the Chapels of mercy.

  • It was a great piece of history, and our kids loved it. Lots of places to explore. The audio machines for the tour are included in the very reasonable price.
  • Nice audio tour. You can go to the top of the Bell tower where you will be greeted with an amazing view.
  • 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
  • Well worth a visit.
