  • Guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Visitors should be in good health and able to walk on uneven surfaces and climb narrow stairs.

  • Once we got to the castle the guy explained a brief history and layout to us and let us get on with it. I climbed to the top of the tower while Deb stayed on the ground floor. It was four flights up a spiral staircase with no pauses as you couldn't visit any of the rooms in the keep. Once on the roof the views were predictably amazing, you really could see for miles. After walking the circuit of the roof I carefully made my way down the stairs and we then visited the prison. This was a proper detention facility with single cells, no windows and a real sense of losing liberty, even though we knew the doors were open! The tour continued with a visit to the armoury where there some mail armour and a few swords on display. There was an exhibition of WW1 memorabilia including some of the horrendous trench fighting weapons but we couldn't read anything as it was all in Italian. Two rooms were dedicated to photography of the local area which was very good and gave us a couple of idea for other places to visit. We then left the castle and spent more time exploring the side streets before reaching the main square and having a coffee and cake.
  • Beautiful castle, but it isn't really worth it to pay the ticket and visit inside. The only thing to see is a photography exhibit (not impressive in my opinion), a collection of gramophones and a very small exhibit of armory, and 3 prison cells. Sounds more exciting than it actually is, trust me! The view from the tower is beautiful, if you manage to climb up the 90 something steps. Overall not a bad experience.
