A small but quality collection of artifacts, well laid out and with signage that gave us a good appreciation of the areas history. Worth a visit

We drove into Castellina which was recommended to us by a fellow traveler. So glad that we visited and saw this charming little town. You can walk the entire town in about 30 minutes but do visit the castle, little shops, and have lunch/dinner under the tunnel- passage way. Also, visit an amazing photographer, Andrea Rontini, who uses a pre-digital... More

We spent a week visiting the town enjoying the restaurants, shops and the wonderful gelato shop and really didn't pay any attention to this Castle until the day we were leaving. I can't judge the quality of the Etruscan artifacts but they are well labelled and carefully displayed. The view from the top though is sensational. You can see for... More

If you like old towns and nice views, this is the place for you. It's small enough to walk from end to end in one afternoon at a relaxed pace, but it's big enough to keep you entertained throughout. At almost every bend there is a breathtaking view, a picture opportunity, nice little caffe. And, for some reason, lots of... More

We have been coming here since 1999 and I finally spent a whole 5 euro to have a look around to kill some time waiting for the Coop to open. This was the best 5 euro other than a cold Birra Moretti on a hot day I have spent. I'm not normally into this sort of thing but found it... More

Right in the middle of town, this fortress museum has an sizable collection of Etruscan artifacts. Entry fee is 5 euros and it is a clipboard guided tour. You have to read the sheets on the clipboard to get some info about the exhibit. If this isn't your thing, the views from the top of the fortress tower, keep and... More

Visited the museum with my Wife and Daughter. There was quite a lot to look at in the museum such as archaeological artefacts. Unfortunately all of the english written guide sheets had been handed out already so we had to try and understand a french guide sheet. So really we missed a lot of the finer detail of the exhibitions.... More

A few interesting Etruscan pieces in the little museum (along with the usual pots) and it's a great view from the top of the castle tower. Very helpful and friendly staff at the front desk. For more of a castle tour, visit the one in Staggia, just south of Poggibonsi where you get a very interesting guided tour. A warning... More

The most amazing thing about Rocca di Castellina is that it is right in centro Castellina. Great photo ops and interesting history!
