I was actually excited visiting Castello di Amorosa but began wondering if it was going to be worth the drive or if it was going to be a tourist trap of cheesy imitation European decor. After we left, I told my partner that I was glad we gave it a chance because it was so worth it.
The buildings and furnishings are from old European castle ruins that were imported to build the mishmash structure, giving it an authentic look instead of some machine cast replica. Once you walk through the main gate, you almost feel like you have been transported to the old country. This design and attention to detail spans all the way from the entrance down to the catacombs. I highly suggest taking the guided tour as you will see more areas that are off limits to the self guided tours. The domed ceilings in the wine room alone are worth paying to see.
There are plenty of photo opportunities from the castle itself to the surrounding scenery. I have posted one that reminds me so much of our trip many years ago to Tuscany.
