  • Hard to find so little attractive castles, poorly maintained and virtually inaccessible in many areas for maintenance/wee, the image for scale are you'll take away from this castle together with its safes and sofas and boxes for gifts. Good guide service included in the price of the ticket (disproportionate cost), pity that the information about the Castle and its exhibits end up being trivial and not very attractive given that these findings are not that great. Only thing beautiful or impressive is the "legend" for which all are here namely azzurrina, don't expect anything that the guide will repeat the same ideniche 2 lines that can be found anywhere without adding anything more and feel of audio concerns, so a waste of time in my opinion, better to devote time and energy to other castles and villages.

  • Really nice castle, we love it. Great history, educational, beautiful views. The story in the castle about the young girl will give you goose bumps. Perfect distance from the beach area so it's a perfect day tour.
  • Fantastico e` multo carino
  • Place on top of a rocky outcrop in the middle of the Val Marecchia just a few kilometres from Rimini Montebello castle lived in recent years a second life from the point of view of tourism; in fact, thanks to the legend of Azzurrina there are many visitors who reach the attraction. The Castle while being protected by the cultural heritage is private so your visit, for a fee, must be made with a guide accompanying the tourists. A low cost, the skill of driving that can make really interesting ride of about an hour at the facility and the fantastic location of the Manor transformed Montebello castle into a real gem to visit.

  • Very verbose Guide, to see there is very little, but it lasts an hour just because the Guide does nothing but talk and hassle you, and when you finish the ride you've got a bad headache and back pain!! You can't take pictures for security reasons-he says-stupid huge!! On the web there are thousands of photos
