We stopped in Alessandria for the first time as we'd driven past and seen the advertised star shaped Cittadella many times whilst passing on the motorway. We were the only visitors and were able to wander around the outside of the buildings at leisure. This was in the morning and the only guided tours were held after four in the afternoon. The area covered by the barracks was vast and the buildings were in various stages of decay. Some were in the process of restoration but it was obvious that not much money had been spent on this. There were plaques giving a glimpse of the importance of the citadella during the first and second world wars. It would be a very interesting visit for a military historian. There was a childrens playground and lots of space/parking. Some attempt had been made to create a nature trail.
