  • The delightful couple on entrance refused to let my 8 year old son use the toilet in the castle, despite suffering sever stomach cramps. And despite the fact that children under 12 enter free anyway!!...  more »
  • A beautiful view of Portofino and the rest of the place. There one can climb stairs to reach but worth it: take the time and once there you won't regret! However € 5 entry: we put in tourist mode... For the rest of the city is top it works not bad (except the price of ice €8) I think we got have :)! To visit if you go in Italy!

  • If you're in Portofino for more than a day you really should spend the 5 euros and climb up to the castle. The views of the town and Rapallo from the patio were awesome plus the fee helps maintain the place. Nothing too fancy here but I don't get to walk around in 500 year old buildings very often. If you've come this far, go out to the lighthouse at the very end for more beautiful views but beware, the Lighthouse Pub is closed on Wednesdays. That happened to be the day we went.
  • A short walk up the hill to this castle. The Euro 5 is worth as there are not many people visit and as you walk around the castle, it feels like you are living there. Lovely panoramic views of the area
  • A great walk and beautiful gardens, with amazing views. Quiet building. $5 euros.
  • Best view of the village of Portofino is from Castello Brown. You also get great views of the Ligurian sea and coastline. Don't expect to see prince's and princesses in the castle it's more about enjoying the beautiful flowers, ancient architecture and an unbeatable view!
  • Quite a few steps up to get to the Castle, cost for entry is 5 Euros per person as of June 2017. The view from the rooftop garden is amazing, looking down at all the ships in Portofino. There's also a water refill fountain just outside the castle front door off to the side little courtyard. Nice washroom too.
