  • 4 dots because I love the castles, this, visited at night has its own beautiful charm and very impressive. Unfortunately we chose the night of halloween and here the reason of my NON 5 stars. I was informed if that was the case of booking tickets and I was told that there was no need nn, that place is there was and it was enough to get to 9.50 (10 min prior to the start of the tour). We arrived even before actually but the cashier told us that they had already filled the first two rounds and would have to wait, considering that it came a group that had reserved and is then entered for (because they and we don't?). After a three-hour drive, if I knew so I organized differently. CMQ the tour we did and it was great. The Council ... Surely in an evening "normal" do not lose too much time.

  • Shame about the road, because getting there is really a business (especially at night) because the visit is very interesting. Friends and I did the night tour, the guide was really professional and at the same time frightening, causing us to enter into the spirit paranormal of the Castle. Very beautiful also the audios that are felt towards the end of the round!

  • Driven by curiosity to know some more information about the legend of Azzurrina we ventured over the top to get to Montebello. The village is small but the visit to the castle is well worth undertaking. The guide we had was a real passionate and knew how to get us to imagine the life that once crossed the Castle beyond telling us in great detail of Azzurrina that sure I'll read something else on my behalf. What about ... a very addicting!

  • 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
