Carini castle and the surrounding medieval town is one of the best preserved in Sicily. The views are stunning and it is really fun to wander around the castle, which now hosts a puppet museum. There are also lots of cool little bars tucked in around the castle walls. You can also rent the castle for your private event.

The guide who showed us around was very knowledgeable and friendly. He related the history of the castle and how it evolved. Internal decor is lovely and views are amazing. Worth a visit.

Trip to town Carini better organize in day time, for sure the castle and town itself will look more friendly. Without guide and group of people castle is very dark, some lamps are not working ( especially if talkin about the murder room) my 5 years old daughter was quite freightened. With entrance ticket you will get the book, which is about town and Sicilia in general. Great gift and better explains most of the holidays and traditions that any Other guide book which you can buy in stores. Castle is in good shape. Recommend for visiting.👍

When I review the Google map location of Carini it is miles off the coast. When I was traveling in the area Carini was inland. What am I missing as to it's being on the coast?a

They are still working on renovations, but this castle, and the story behind it, tell the tale of a city just over the mountains from Palermo, with its own unique and interesting history. Well worth a trip up from the highway.

We were told from our landlady that this Castello was a must see. We found our way up the hillside to be rewarded by a fabulous view of Capaci, Trevento and Isola delle Feminne. We explored the castle and came across some fabulous antique marinonettes and mannequins with period costumes. The town of Carini is quaint with a fabulous church with amazing bronze sculptures on the main door.

My daughter and I arrived in the early afternoon, just about they time they were closing for a few hours for lunch. Being a little sneaky, we found an open door and sneaked in for a little time to roam around and experience the beauty of the interior of the castle and the view from the upper windows. Just beautiful!

While visiting family in Carini, they took us to Castello di Carini. The kids enjoyed exploring as well as learning the sorted history of the castle.

It has always been a place full of charm due to its sad history. The guided tour, which today was interspersed with theatrical moments that told the story of the 'bitter case of the Baroness of Carini', allowed us to get to know all the accessible rooms, some rebuilt, of the castle, a work (it would seem, in the fifteenth century construction) by Matteo Carnalivari, the great architect who also designed Palazzo Abatellis in Palermo! Not to be missed!

Disappointing experience. The cost of the ticket is €3.50. There is no guide, there are no indications on the route to follow, nor adequate captions. Outside, the castle walls have been renovated and closed on one side by a modern wall which defaces and ruins the historic environment. Inside there is just a lot of confusion and little history. Leaving the castle we entered the historic center: of the 13 churches in the town none, except one, were open. The only one, the one in the main square, even though it was open and the parish priest was outside, told us that we couldn't enter before 5.30pm. A territory that could offer much more in terms of history and art.
