Sensational view of Portofino. Relaxing place with nice gardens, but it's the view that you go for - and only the very picky would be disappointed.

A must when visiting Portofino as the view from the castle is just amazing! The castle it self is also pretty and has lovely flowers planted around it.

A bit of a strenuous walk but the payoff is the best view in Portofino. Castle itself is a bit more like a run down house so don’t expect much, but the view from the left corner of the back patio is worth the price...More

The Castello is the setting for Elizabeth Von Arnim's book 'Enchanted April' and also for the BBC film of the same name. It is a long walk up the hill (take water with you) but worth the trek if you have either read the book...More

The views of portofino from the castle are exceptional. The castle itself is surrounded in flowers making it very attractive and fragrant. We enjoyed the film of the history of Portofino and of course the music of Andrea Botticelli. A memorable visit.

It is worth the climb. The castle is exquisite old furniture mixed with contemporary pictures. Beautiful gardens with ancient roses and jasmine. A must go when in. Portofino

Go for the view of Portofino harbor. The castle itself is just ok. It takes about 10-15 minutes to reach the castle. Entance is 5 euro cash only.

Tickets are not expensive, €5. It is a small castle, not much inside, but the views are fabulous, the best views of Portofino small bay are from here. You cannot miss them.

this is an old castle style builldng set up high on the promontory overlooking the harbour at portofino, it is a fairly steep walk to get to this point but well worth it as there are some very interesting artefacts to discover and spectacular views...More

It took me about 30 minutes to climb. It's a solid hike. Not sure if there is any transportation available. The views are breathtaking.
