Castle closed 17.07.18 because of owner having had eye operation. there a re so many steps up that you may wish to to find out if it's now open before going up. we enjoyed the climb anyway!

It appears at the summit of the hill which you can figure out the dominant structure of the Maiori Castle. It’s a beautiful sight walking to it and still the proud villages of Carpineto and Accola’s dominating figure.

Beautiful place with nice view to Maiori and sea. Lots of all kinds of flowers, butterflies, birds, quietness. The actual castle was closed for renovation (?), so we couldn’t get in.

Well worth the 881 steps from Maiori (sloping sections in between) to get to the Castle. Very friendly gentleman who's ancestors owned the castle, he is rightfully proud, and is waiting at the entrance to show you around and explain in broken Italian the artifacts....More

Steep hike was well worth it! The views of the lemon trees in the valley below and to the town of Maiori and the sea are stunning. The friendly Italian owner was delightful and happily showed us all the relics from the castle. He made...More

The walk up to the castle would be a little too stiff for someone not used to strenuous walks, but is worth the effort for those who are able. The path leads from the Via Nuova Provinciale Chiunzi (a sign marks the way on the...More
