We walked the castle and ruins in Avio. There are many rooms to walk through. None of the rooms are furnished so you need to use your imagination to finish the rooms. I do prefer walking the ruins like this versus a fully restored castle as I like to feel the old age of the castle. The frescos in a few of the rooms were interesting to see and the entrance fee was reasonable.

Great idea giving you a map and some hints to make your children (and you) searching for stickers around the castle and at the same time exploring this wonderful location

They only have two tables on the terrace where you have no view of the mountains. They have a three course menu and that leaves you not many choices to choose from. But it’s nice to have a place to rest, have a drink and somewhere to eat after you climb up to the castle :) We had a lasagna and veal with sauerkraut. The food was good.

This castle, with multiple buildings, some 5-stories tall, is a magical place, with nooks and tables under pergolas for sitting and relaxing. The buildings alone are a sight to see, with vestiges of chimneys, and elaborate frescoes. The grounds are beautifully maintained with roses and grape-vine pergolas. There is a small bar/restaurant nestled in a cool corner of an external wall, with a wonderful selection of local wines and grappa for sale. The views down the Adige river are spectacular. There is also a self-guided program for children, with audio boxes in many rooms which tell about the history of the castle as well as local traditions. Be prepared to walk up and down a hill to and from the castle and parking lot, and be prepared to climb stairs throughout the castle. (Heels not advised.) But as they say in Italy, "Ne vale la pena!" (It's worth it!). This is a treasure, beautifully restored and maintained by FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano).

Fun. Be prepared to walk up steep a hill. Very interesting place with great views and an excellent little restaurant which is worth the visit itself.
