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

This is a must do if you are staying in Maiori, the walk up is tough but there are plenty of places to stop and rest along the way and it is well worth it when you get to the top. The views are amazing and "the king of the castle" is well worth meeting. Beautiful spot. Bring plenty of... More

Great place to walk to, but be careful there are lots of steps. The walk once you step off the main road is 30-45 mins up so many steps, so so many steps. Just like everywhere else in this part of Italy it isn't open between 1330 and 1630, so make sure you time it right. The elderly gentleman there... More

It is a long way up with a lot of steps to climb but when you get there a lovely gentleman gives you a personal tour and introduction. Amazing views and incredibly warm welcome. We turned up outside of opening hours and he still took time to show us around.

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!!

Wow what a view, was a long way up but worth every step when you reached the top. Greeted by a very friendly Italian host ,despite the language barrier you could tell he was passionate about his castle ! He guided us to all the good photo opportunities and enjoyed getting into the pictures too, he definitely was the King... More
