As others reviewers have stated this is a place you must visit. Start early before it gets too hot as there is a lot of climbing. When you get to the gate you ring the bell and wait for Sr Di Martino, a lovely Italian gentleman who told us that he is 'King of the Castle', you then get a... More

What an absolute gem the castle and the owner are. He is such a character who loves this place. The view you get as you ascend the many steps makes all the sweat and breathlessness worth it. It's a must do in maiorI you won't be disappointed. Don't forget your camera!!

He guided us to all the good photo opportunities and enjoyed getting into the pictures too, he definitely was the King... More

Many steps to climb, but increasingly good views the higher you get. We were the only people there this morning, and it was fascinating to hear about the history of the owner and the castello, with a walk round some of the 9 towers and photo stops.

Lots of steps to climb before you get the the ruined castle, some relics to view inside the castle, a very nice gentleman showed us around, the views of course were fantastic. Then we had to walk down the many steps again. If you decide to visit the castle make sure you have comfortable footwear and plenty of water. There... More

Lots of steps but worth the hike to see the beautiful views of the town and sea. We took a lunch and hiked further up the mountain for even better view.

902 steps in searing heat but worth it when you get there. The views over Maiori were spectacular, and the gentleman who looks after the castle (sorry I've forgotten his name) was brilliant. He had next to no English and we had no Italian but he took the time to show us around and explain things and was just a... More

It is quite a trek but well worth the effort. Rather than take the stone steps just to the left where there is a more ancient path to the castle and this is a much more interesting walk.

Sr di Martino is charming. He gave us a friendly and informative tour of his castle. I asked him who was doing the renovations to which he replied: "I am. I am the King of the Castle." It was so peaceful up there and well worth the climb.
