You can go inside Castello only if you will buy ticket to Museum. Near castello you can rest in peace. There are no people. You can make some good fotos :)

What's to dislike? A fine seaside town. Unspoiled. We met kindness and courtesy everywhere inLerici. Good boat connections to Porto Venere. make the trip. It takes half an hour

Actually it may not have been closed. It was Monday and many sites are closed on Mondays. This one seemed to be but there was an intercom. Perhaps it was possible to arouse the custodians and beg for a tour of the palaeontology museum. We chose not to, and wandered off down the picturesque streets to Lerici. Whatever, it's a... More

We had a great walk to Lerici Castle, Lerici Castle is right nearby the city centre and there is a very nice restaurant right below its walls, enter the tunnel from Lerici dock and exit on the other side, you will find a Cicillo restaurant and a tiny beach. If you would like a great place to stay in Lerici... More

The castle has been turned into a dinosaur museum, and a toy museum. We would have preferred that it remain as the grand castello it was, but I understand why they turned it into a museum. That said, it is an incredible structure.

There is a small fee to pay for this attraction although it is all worth it - take your time and climb the many steps to the top and enjoy the amazing views.

The castle of Lerici is in very good shape and very beautifull, certainly in the evening. You can walk from this castle to the one in San Terenzo. It takes about 45 min - 1 hour, but is a very nice walk.

Decided to check out the castle but the steps from the beach seemed a bit steep. So we went around through the town and found a gentler path. The castle has many room that are fairly dark and they are featuring a dinosaur exhibit. Some children and parents were enjoying the display. There is a small amount of outdoor space... More
