  • Nice nice! Il borghetto, the Castle, the silence, nature, light and the scenery ... silence and clean air. A treat in summer, charming in winter. Great driving tour of the Castle, a girl, which made us appreciate the history of the village and the castle that is much, much more of the legend linked to Shine! To see. Ah...in country you eat even so good. Seeing is believing.

  • A dip in the middle ages, the area that sits on a rocky outcrop. Below the Castle lies the village of Montebello. A medieval gem crossed by narrow streets and small squares that overlook a breathtaking view over the Valley of the River Marecchia. The Castle, that dominates on the village and the Valley, is very cute and charming in that here was born the story of "Shine", missing child in the icebox of the Castle and it is said that on some days of the year you can hear his voice within the walls of the Castle. The guide who followed us to visit to the castle is very prepared and use clear and simple language and his passion for the place

  • Visit on a Saturday night, which lasted almost an hour. Very professional and comprehensive guide, made us appreciate the history of the Castle and of Azzurrina, without making it too fictionalized. Very beautiful furnishings, but describes best in daytime visit.

  • 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
