Not far from the beach, visitors can climb to the top to see a beautiful view of the entire village. History aficionados and museum lovers will enjoy the exhibits inside the castle, though there is an entry fee. Unfortunately, many places of the Castle are sometimes closed to visitors.

OK, only about the walk up and the views from the top. You don't get to go inside the castle and you can walk around the other side of the castle and down to the beach there.

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 :)

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.
