The castle is rather small and the artifact display just average. However, the view from the top is FANTASTIC! If you want some great photos from La Spezia, this is a must go.

We didn't go inside the museum. We paid only to access the terrace, but the views that you get over La Spezia and the surrounding area are well worth the entrance fee.

Wow and wow. Lovely views, elevator and funicular up to the castle ( which we discovered after we’d walked up - quite an easy climb) but, best of all, some fossils from the Pleistocene ( about 2,588,000 to 11,700 years ago, ) era. The price us included in the three day, 5 museums pass - which costs €10 and is well worth purchasing.

At the time of writing this it was impossible to go on any of the terraces as there were breeding sea gulls, which were highly aggressive. We had a bit of a Hitchcock moment and had to run for our lives. The view was average, but you won’t be tempted to take a picture. The museum itself as a few bits and pieces but it’s poorly presented and all quite dry. Not suitable for children. There is little or no presentation about the castle itself, it’s history or it’s architecture. Don’t bother.

The location of the castle is excellent for a panoramic view of the port facilities and the Gulf of La Spezia. Converted into a museum, the castle has several collections of archaeological artifacts from the Roman and earlier era. There are many systems of tiers to reach the castle, but also a system of 2 public lifts at the end of Via Indipendenza, in 2 sections, which make it easier.
