I'm sure that on a sunny day visiting the Castello gives you a fantastic 360 view of the area--so don't miss it on a good day. I'd rate it higher if we had been there on a sunny day. We visited on a very foggy day, however, so, we really just experienced the ruins and the nice walk around the perimeter road. There is a QR code that should provide historical information about the tower on your phone, but it didn't work for us. It IS interesting to see how high and thick the walls were and the walk is pretty, even in the fog.

A giant green area nearby the center of town, a little 'difficult to reach for those who are going to reach it by walking, it is positioned on top of a hill, but from anywhere in town you can reach the top of the hill just by walking for about 10 minutes. The "Castle" is a credit to the citizens, not for the immense and lush green area but to have played in the history of Italy a place of honor. Walking the streets you can see the remains of a mighty Roman's wall dated back the first century BC built well before the famous Colosseum in Rome. Apart from this there are the remains of the fortification during the Middle Ages hung over the city, fortification later destroyed by Napoleon. Throughout history even Frederick Barbarossa, the Lombards and in the end even some retaliation and the shooting of partisans during WWII. This place is more beautiful than you can imagine. Great for running, a walk or a little' relaxation away from the chaos of the city. In my opinion it's a top attraction of the city.
