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

Good ruin with great views and interesting small museum. 700 steps up so do it early before the heat of the day

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

This castle overlooks Maiori so throughout our trip I wanted to go up and visit it. It is quite a trek to get up there so I wouldn't advise it for old people as there are a lot of stairs and it does get quite hot. There are benches that you can stop at while you are climbing up. When... More

My friend and I like to find unique excursions and this definitely fit the bill! We did some research on the times this was open and headed out. It is important that you allow ample time just to get through the town of Maiori and up the to the castle so that you don't miss the opportunity. From the beginning... More

a personal tour by the descendant of the family that owned the castle/fortress. Like a museum but you could actually touch the artifacts. Great views, wonder tour.

We were told the castle would be open until midday - we got there at around 9.30am to find it closed. We met some people on our way down, they said they tried to visit twice but put it was closed each time. We up climbed the stairs to get there. It didn't take long - it would have been... More
