Of all the many castello's in the Parma surroundings, we recommend visiting this one in particular. The views are breathtaking (on a sunny and clear day). This 15th century fortress has recently been painstakingly restored and houses various unexpectedly elegant rooms. It's possible to stroll...More

I went to visit the castle in the late July 2018. And the place was gorgeous (like almost everything in this region)! Can’t recall the weekday, but anyways the castle closed super early (4-6pm) so you should totally check the opening hours before going there!...More

It is easy to see why this is a World Heritage Site. We were lucky to go in late September when there were no crowds. We parked up by the castle (alternative is to park below and walk up if the upper lot is full)....More

Not the biggest castle I've ever seen, but definitely among the most interesting. Despite its small size, you find yourself spending a long time admiring the amazing wall and ceiling paintings. You park at the bottom of the hill, but it's an easy hike up,...More

We went on a guided tour of the Castle. I was glad that we did a guided tour because the story of the Castle is fabulous and I would have missed that if I toured the castle on my own. The castle is well preserved...More

I drove there. Did not notice any train station - this is a very agricultural place in the country, and not near an urban centre. There must be a bus that can bring you there. Sorry I do not have more specific information... More
