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

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.

Many, many steps, but at the top the view is breathtaking. Unfortunatelly the castle was closed, so it's a good to check the what time it's open:)
