An hour from our villa near Arezzo,after a beautiful drive through picturesque countryside, we arrived at the wonderful little town of Poppi. Easy, free parking and a short walk through well preserved medieval streets we came upon the castle. The views from the grounds of the castle and its cafe are exceptional. Coffee and panini at the cafe were excellent.... More

My wife and I visited this castle several times over the course of years, partly because it is such a landmark in the Casentino valley and partly because it houses an interesting permanent exhibition about Dante. Recently we organized a Dante-tour of the Casentino and spent some time there with our group. The participants were very pleased with the visit,... More

The castle has a great view from the top of the tower (with working bells, so be careful when entering the tower). The exhibit and interior is also very interesting and worth a visit!

Well preserved small castle in a beautiful setting overlooking the Casentino valley. Entrance fee is €5 and is well worth it. Kids will enjoy exploring the various levels, dungeon and bell tower. Nice exhibits inside and a great little cafe in the square outside. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

A very well preserved castle, with very interesting history. I would recommend that you visit it if you find yourself there. Also has a very nice cafeteria in the front where you can sit outside and enjoy your coffee.

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!

Not too big, nor the most important of all the monuments you can encounter in Tuscany, but still well kept and very interesting if you like to learn about medieval battles. The entire village is worthy a visit.

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.
