  • Worth getting a nice trip up here, the fortress is a jewel restored to perfection, the flagship driving who passionately explains trivia and history of verrucole and never get bored. Also accessible to people with mobility issues, there is a train that takes you up on, lift and freight elevator.

  • After years of absolute devotion to this beautiful monument, discovered by accident, I have witnessed the metamorphosis continues, over time. But I would never have believed that the "Gacs" get so much!!! With my husband, about two years ago, came back to find the fortress of Verrucole. With great astonishment, and irrepressible joy, she greeted us in a way that I never would have expected. For the eyes is a real show, time seems to stand still. In respect of what was, was rebuilt impeccably. But not only ... and here comes the best part: they welcomed its inhabitants, and right from the entrance, we found ourselves in an era that we ever have known so closely ... you know, from that day, all I did was think about how I could take my mom in that enchanted world. When coming back, I told our visit, it was was shocked at. She, too, had admired the ruined fortress with me. But now, too many years, my mom has great difficulty walking and that Hill so steep that leads out of the country, it would be impossible for her. I searched the internet and I found a way to contact the managers, I wanted to ask permission to come drive up there, but they have done more than that!!! We agreed upon arrival and when I touched the country a "faultless driver" was already there waiting for us. My mother has immediately touched ... did not believe her eyes! With a Panda older model (only for size) we climb up to the gate. And then ... from start to finish, a unique experience! Our clothes are just seemed out of place because, starting from the Castellana you so graciously accepted all the inhabitants wearing medieval costumes. In the building there is a Museum, and its interiors were reconstructed in detail, from furniture to arms, from the beds to the costumes, and the warden explains clearly and passionately to visitors, the life that was, in a place so spectacular. Everything has revived thanks to skilful restoration and staff priceless, living this experience every day with increasing enthusiasm. And as a result the experience to its guests. Our visit ended with a cold drink in the tavern (the view from there is priceless) But I cannot fail to thank those who allowed me to realize the dream of showing my mom so much wonder! We left with in the heart the desire to come back soon. In addition to elevator which is already in operation, they tell me that soon, there will be a means to facilitate Ontani gated, and maybe we can try again, who knows. Meanwhile, all the Organization, thank you again for the welcome the kindness and the preparation that has shown us and recommend it to everyone you visiting the fortress of Verrucole, that for young and old, will be a unique and unforgettable experience!

  • Good couple of hours enjoyment for kids. Quite a hike from the car park. Good value though and the food looked good too although we didn't partake.
  • Beautiful landscape around an impressive castle.
  • Well worth a visit. Not the largest fortress but it is well staffed during tourist season, has a lovely taverna serving drinks and light refreshments. Much of the fort is decorated and fitted out as in the old days, giving a nice flavour of the place on it's hey day.
  • An amazing place where history comes alive.
  • Beautiful location. Amazing guided tour from a very knowledgeable person.
