I did not expect to find a medieval castle in Italy, but this is exactly what this looks like, complete with moat. You expect to see a knight in shining armor come out the gate at any moment. Very picturesque castle from the outside, although...More

If you climb all the way to the top, the pictures are beautiful. There are different views such as the lake and different houses in the background painted colourfully.

We visited the castle fairly early in the day so there was no queue at all. We also bought a duo ticket to go and visit the Grotte as well, which made it slightly cheaper. I don't like heights but because it was quiet we...More

There is an entrance ticket to the archaeological site. The castle is in the centre of the village, you can't miss it. There are toilet facilities too.
