  • Visited this castle on a slightly hazy, so I couldn't enjoy the view. But the gloomy day remained outside the walls thanks to the Guide, a girl, that made me appreciate more the legend of Azzurrina!

  • Evocative and mysterious Castle in a magical setting. recommend to spend a trip into the past

  • The visit, which lasts for three quarters of an hour, is quite boring and, although the Guide trying to entertain people, only the last 5 minutes arouse some excitement ... Deserves so for the legend of Azzurrina, the castle itself is not of particular importance, especially when compared to the nearby and spectacular fortress of San Leo.

  • 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
