This magnificent castle is the creation of the man who succeeded Cavour, who was the first Prime Minister of Italy. However as it is still the home of the Ricasolis, visits do not include the interior (except by arrangement via a tour operator). The €5...More

Castello has a great history and lovely grounds. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertained all of our questions. We had the Classic Tour which lasted a little over two hours and featured a tasting of three wines at the very end. Very enjoyable!

There's free parking below then a good walk up to the castle but definitely worth the effort. Beautiful grounds with an interesting sculpture display and a beautiful crypt. Then a short drive to the wine tasting along the road which is included in the price.
