Lovely castle in a beautiful town off the beaten track. Well worth a visit, and then relax in the outdoor cafe in front of the castle. Be sure to explore Poppi while you are there!

A walk through - and up and down - this castle gives you a real feel for medieval Italian life, Much more on a human scale than the major castles with their inaccessible grandeur. It's possible to imagine life as it was lived here.

If you want to find a Classic Tuscany medieval hilltop town to add to your tour I can recomend this gem . Easy to find, easy to park great views, history and unlike Florence/Senna/Pisa etc.it's not jam packed with coach loads of tourists.

This 12th century castle is located in the center of the small town of Poppi, near Arezzo.in excellent condition, you can visit the entire castle and climb to the top to see the panoramic view. visit also the Conti chapel with the fresco's while in Poppi and if you have young children, visit the zoo too.

We'd done three days in Florence, a day split between Siena and San Gimignano, and an afternoon in the Chianti hills where we were staying. All very splendid and you have to do them. But then we dived into into the wilder, high green hills and hairpin bends of the Casentino region, via Regello, Vallombrosa and a detour to the... More

A genuine Italian castle, with interesting rooms. It's too bad it only opens at 10:00, as quite a few people were hanging around outside, obviously wanting to get in quite a bit earlier and get on with the arduous task of sightseeing. Some of the rooms contain some interesting exhibits prepared by local high school students, and the tower is... More

An unassuming castle but was pleasantly surprised once inside. It has a good collection of ancient books and manuscripts. Overall a nice site for the family to visit but nothing out this world
