On our way was the castle of Poppi (often these castles are not worth the visit but this is really an exception, it is certainly worth a detour), the monastero di Camaldoni (you can enjoy the spiritual ambiance, visit the old pharmacie, the church, ...); These two were...

Beautiful castle which you can visit without restriction. Very small place which immediately idea is - as it was living in hundreds of years back. Worth visit, take some time to walk in peace and enjoy.

Beautiful castle and well worth seeing. The climb to the top was a bit narrow but the view was fell worth it. You can get an audio guide for no extra charge but I had to ask (it was not volunteered). The audio guide added a lot of interesting background to the experience.

I was able to see some of the oldest Dante manuscripts on vellum with student marginalia from centuries ago! This was an extraordinary privilege.

If you love castles and staircases this is the place to visit! Part of the medieval town this castle is an excellent place to visit with split floors and many staircases. The colour on the walls is also reflective of the era, so well worth the €5 entrance fee.

A castle that is being maintained and so worth the small entry fee. The internal staircases were amazing

Head sets were provided with a good commentary. The rooms were open with ease of viewing. Not completely furnished but the rooms did have some paintings and minimum furniture.Views looking down on Poppi were amazing

An amazing small castle, with explanations in English (for a change!) and surprises around every corner. You walk into an open area with staircases in all directions - very Hogwarts. Great views in all directions; I chickened out on the tower - just as well as the bell was due to chime! My wife had said that she didn't want... More

lovely views, audio guide was helpful, incredible history well explained in the guide and on the written material in each room. The library alone was worth the trip.
