We had a somewhat odd experience at Compiano. We arrived at 17:45, plenty early for the last guided tour at 18:30. When we walked into the reception area there was nobody there.

When I visited this castle it was closed for repairs and renovation works but even outside of such events it has a very strange opening hours so be sure to check before you go. If by change you find it closed a beautiful drive is over the col towards Bedonia where you can still find some villages almost completely abandoned.

I have been to many of the castles in the Parma/Piacenza area and although this was not my favorite castle, it was definitely worth the visit.

it is really a nice sight to see Compiano and its castle overlooking the Taro river valley. A walk through the town is absolutely worthwhile. Intersting is the visit of the castle, which has kept the furniture ( sometimes a bit dusty ) of the last owner

The castle was built in the 8th century which seems unbelievable when you look at it! As of July this year the castle is back for hire (conferences, weddings and etc) together with a hotel of 13 rooms. Very beautiful!
