“not worth 8,5 euro”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

The visit to the Rocca included the doll's museum, the gardens and the castle. It all takes about one hour and there is cafeteria inside; the right price should be 2-3 euros max.
8,5 euro is a rip off

“a must-see for Lake Maggiore visitors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

Fantastic views over the lake from the top of the tower (must be able to manage quite a lot of steps). Amazing collection of dolls and automatons in the huge museum spread over lots of rooms in the castle itself. Also love the old wine press. My favourite room of all is the council room, which has no furniture but the most amazing frescoed walls. The 'medieval garden' is also really interesting, a re-creation of how gardens were in those days, complete with sounds of songbirds and ancient music, as well as illustrations of farming practice. Do not miss!
