Long, hot walk up100m of steps to this 1090 castle with Moorish origins from the town, but can be approached by car. Keeper lives in tiny museum of his own finds. No charge but donation to enter. Romantically tumbled down with tiny chapel and restored barracks. Only 3 of 9 towers visitable, spectacular view of Maiori and bay, Ravello and... More

My husband and I were staying in Minori and decided to walk to Maiori and climb the stairs up to the Castello. The day we went, it was very hot (95 degrees Fahrenheit) and the walk up the stairs was mostly exposed to the sun. We were very happy to have water bottles. Two adorable dogs met us along the...

Following the directions given via TripAdvisor, the Castello was very easy to find and a short walk away from anything in Maiori. The trip itself let you feel surrounded by the culture. Make sure to bring water and to take breaks as necessary. The path was shaded a majority of the way which was very convenient. No matter what time... More

So we had heard of Castello do Toro Plano on Trip Advisor and thought it would be a good way to spend a morning....we were wrong....it was an amazing way to spend a morning and the must see local attraction. Firstly, don't let the steps out you off, they are split in to manageable sections with places to rest along... More

Most amazing views of the town and well worth the climb. The custodian is a lovely man, a real character, who told us all about the history of the area. Easily manageable if you take your time and some water

Definitely worth to go. Lots of steps (around 800, I was counting 😄 ) but also some benches on the way to sit and rest. When you reach the castle you meet a very friendly man that tells you the story of the castle and gives you the tour around it. Despite the fact that he don't speak English very... More

A very interesting castle ruin to tour. The local man who runs it is very enthusiastic and informative. His English isn't great, but he knows enough to get the point across for each item. The view from the castle is amazing. There is no set admission price, but donations are accepted. We cheated a bit and drove most of the... More
