Very nice small walk to the castle with the view on Portofino bay. Not so much to see inside though. Still the most interesting part of Portofino
Entry 5 euro

It's a climb to get here, but the view is worth it. The castle is not so shabby either, and with a lot of history (Churchill once was here... God knows how he got to the top).

The rooms are pretty bare, but several photos explain the history. But the view are incredible.

Short but steep walk up to the castle from the harbor in Portofino. The views from the castle as absolutely amazing and not to be missed if you are visiting Portofino for the first time. The entry price at Euro 5 is very reasonable and worth it.

A stunning uphill walk with views overlooking the bay to this beautiful castle on the hill. If you take time to look around, you can then continue on to the lighthouse - gorgeous at sunset and with a small bar serving drinks. Then back into town for lunch or supper.

The view is nice. Have no idea why they do not sell water and/or snacks along the way.
To me this was overrated. My husband thought so too. The garden was nice, the castle was plain. Not great for people afraid of heights.

Despite its decidedly un-Italian name, Castello Brown is a wonderful Italian experience and should be a highlight of any trip to Portofino. Situated high upon a hill at the best possible angle above the town, this is the place all of those incredible photos are taken from. The uphill walk we found pleasant but realize not everyone will be able to do it.
There is a small fee to enter the castle itself and I recommend paying it but it's not really necessary to go inside. If you have the wonderful experience of visiting Portofino you might as well make the most of it- visit the castle! Highly recommended.

Located high on the hill in Portofino the castle is perfectly sited overlooking the sea. The entrance to the castle is up a long winding path from Portofino bay that takes in the views between the trees and walls as you climb. There is a large garden surrounding the castle on a steep slope. This is a beautiful part of Italy and the castle is well worth a visit.

A pleasant walk up from the town, offering great views of the town and coast from the top. Certainly worth doing while in Portofino
