Castello Caetani, Sermoneta

(500+ reviews on the web)
Castle Tourist Spot
Thirteenth-century Castello Caetani was built as both a military fortress and a noble residence: here, you can glimpse the private and public life of medieval Lazio. Despite the fortress's large, 3 m (10 ft) thick exterior walls, Napoleon's army plundered it in the late 18th century, carrying away its valuables and furniture and turning the castle into a prison. Most restoration work was carried out nearly 100 years later. Visiting hours can be somewhat inconsistent, so it is best to check online or call first if you plan to visit.

  • The Castle was nice. Don't expect a typical movie castle especially inside is pretty empty, but for the price is worth a shot! Ah be careful as every castle there's scary ghost :)
  • Only opened for school's students
  • Small but well maintained. 8 euros to visit maybe a little too much but you retrieve on children which I think do not pay up to 11 years. Advice? Bring a camera to the views

  • The castle is beautiful and very well maintained. I included the picture of the game board with the schedules and prices. The tour lasts about an hour and it's driven. Congratulations. Not to be missed.

  • Suggestive, guide prepared. Published schedules aside, it seems to open every time you form a group of people outside the entrance if you get individually.
