  • Among the castles of the Duchy this Torrechiara is perhaps one of the most beautiful. Very well preserved and with descriptions for each room, the visit is a trip to the past. Leave the car down in a parking lot, after a short uphill walk through the Archway that leads to the village of the same name and from here to the castle for a tour of the frescoed rooms and walkways

  • Wonderful Castle from which you expect to see ladies and Knights out at any moment. Really cheap tickets, pity there is not a guided tour, but all rooms have a written explanation. The facilities are clean and at the end of the visit, there is also the option of eating in a fine Inn in the old town.

  • Beautiful big castle. Fantastic views over the fields. Many well preserved paintings on all walls and ceilings. Not much info for English speakers. Fair price admission fee - 3 eur for adults and 1 for the kids. A quick tour - half an hour - Ended the tour with delicious lunch at the Michelin recommended taverna just out side.
  • I just love the place!!!
  • Old Historic Place
  • A walk in Borgetto at the foot of a castle can be visited too. What is there more beautiful in spring or autumn Sunday? The ability to find small boutiques selling fine wine, a delicious restaurant and modern, stunning views of the landscape cicrostate and a castle with medieval features. To stay there!

  • Beautiful well maintained and renovated, high-impact the frescoed halls and views from the terraces. Turns freely and descriptive signs guide you to visit. Only concern modern countertops made in the Chapel and in the great Hall on the first floor!?!?!? Anyway I highly recommend! Price ticket 4 euro and very clean bathrooms!!
