  • Arrived on scene we were greeted by a guide dressed in typical medieval style that offered us the guided tour at the price of €3 in addition to the ticket price. The castle is characterised by numerous frescoes but is devoid of furniture. The Castle worth seeing with a guide. We didn't get to enjoy the view they told be spectacular because of the fog.

  • Majestic castle, among the most beautiful and evocative of the area. He breathes his story walking through the alleys. Even more magical enveloped by the darkness of the night. To visit a dozen more times, including interiors!

  • Beautiful castle, with numerous and beautiful frescoes and well maintained. It is the setting of the film Lady Hawke. Bare interiors. Certainly worth a visit

  • One of te best castles at Emilia Romagna region. Antic walls with paintings, fireplaces and citchens... All you can see and touch. Also there are places to eat and have some snacks
  • Nice views. Mostly empty though...
  • Really nice castello...worth a visit
  • Great for a family trip, due to easy access of the castle. Castle in good condition, showcasing stables, defenses and nice art in almost every room. Outside arias offer great views of the surrounding hills. On the first Sunday of every month entry is free, which we luckily stumbled upon on our somewhat random visit.
  • Really nice place and castle, good wine to taste
