They give you available times. A guide actually accompanies you and shows you around. Huge museum filled with artifacts. A must see

It's a beautiful castle/ fortress with a 360 view of Civita Castellana when reaching the top. They didn't speak English so I didn't understand anything. Entrance was free. Guided tour, couldn't roam freely.

as a painting by Corot, the Fort stands majestically among the luxuriant green of the Forra del Treia, the vivid blue of the sky in spring and the red of the tufaceous rocks of Tuscia, also Goethe described it in the memories of his Journey in Italy I’m attracted by the atmosphere that pervades it: built in the XVI° century on a previous medieval construction (on the other hand Civita owes its name Castellana in the presence of countless towers and fortifications "castellane"), Pope Alexander VI Borgia made his fortress, to defend the wealth of family I approach with interest having seen tourists overlooking the walls, a new route allows you to enter some rooms remained always closed to tourists: the guns, the terraces, the Mastio, the cells of rigor the visit is a continuous suggestion: from the narrow spaces reserved for soldiers on guard, to the entrance staircase with lowered steps to access horses on the upper floors, up to the suspended drawbridge that allows access to the octagonal Mastio on the front door the coat of arms of the Rovere family to remember that the expansion works of the fortress were completed during the pontificate of Julius II; crossed the entrance a large terrace overlooks the inner courtyard of the three floors with the residential apartments of the tower going up to the top you can enjoy a wonderful view: the courtyards from above, the beautiful one with the double arches of the arcades; the overhanging wall of the north wing of the Fort; Mount Soratte in the background looking south and the nearby town of Civita with the bell tower of the Duomo dei Cosmati in the foreground going down to the ground floor of the Cortile Maggiore we come to discover the cells of rigor that since the XVIII° century housed the political prisoners of the Papal State along the tour I stopped to listen to the voices of the history that has passed in these places: my eyes look at the ancient walls, the coats of arms, the frescoes, the doors, the floors, the stairs, the arches, as hundreds of years ago they had made Popes, nobles, soldiers, architects, simple castellans and finally prisoners open every day, from the Mart to the Sun, from 9 to 19:00 - visiting hours for the new route 10:00, 12:00, 15:00 and for the whole summer 17:00 - free admission, maximum groups 30 people

Was very disappointed as had to see fort from outside only. Arrived at 1pm to be told it opened at 2. Arrived at 2.30 to be told it opened at 3pm. I got the impression they didn't want us to go in. Website says open from 8am to 7pm so were very disappointed. We couldn't hang around as we had a young baby with us. They need clear signage regarding opening times.
