The castle at Roppolo is at the top of a steep hill but it is well worth the climb (assuming you are approaching it on foot). The castle is still privately owned which perhaps explains why it is well maintained. The guided tour was interesting. Parts of the castle date back to 500 AD, and it at one time played host to Napoleon.

If you are in the area its a must do. Has something for everyone - art, views, history, wine, beautiful bar on the terrace. Excellent English speaking guide, despite her claims that her English was poor - and so knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our time.

Came across the castle by chance, while passing through Ropollo. Decided to stop off. As we were the only visitors we had our own personal guide. Valentina gave us a fantastic tour. The whole place is very interesting and Valentina passed on a wealth of information. Lots of fabulous things to learn about. She answered all of our questions perfectly, with pride in her job and patience.She made our visit memorable. Thank you Valentina.

We walked over from Viverone which was enjoyable in itself, and waited on the terrace with a breath taking view of the valley until the castle reopened after lunch. Our guide was a lovely young lady who spoke excellent English and explained so many interesting things during the one hour tour, besides answering our questions. It was all so fascinating - especially the descent into the dungeon where the remains of the unfortunate Bernardo di Mazze, still lie. A Must-See for history enthusiasts.

The castel is optimal and the guide so well educated and prepared. The place is gorgeous and very interesting. All daily life objects are displayed! The visit to Roppolo have been certainly the best one in Piemonte and our guide was just amazing. Just mentioning her name, mrs Tina. Hope to come back next year to see the restauration progress. Thanks again for this incredible moment!
