Self-guided tour. Each room has a label so you know where you are located. You are given a brochure with information about the castle and a map when your purchase your ticket. This castle has great artwork on the ceiling and walls in the bedrooms and great hall. It is in really good shape considering its age.

The castle was easy to reach from Parma. There was ample parking. The castle was stunning, the views across the valley and the plain were beautiful. The preservation was very impressive. The entrance fee was only €3 per person. Very good value. Highly recommended

This castle is not only well preserved and well situated, it is also a true marvel with it's empty and richly decorated rooms. What we found truly fantastic was the well preserved kitchens. Being there it is very easy to imagine how it was "back then". The views from the castle are fantastic, and it is so easy to spend... More

This castle is a few km from Langhirano and has very good view of the countryside. It is the only place worth visiting around there. There are restaurants and hotel on the castle ground.

Absolutely stunning frescoes and castle. And only for three euros. The golden room is a must see! The countryside offers nice restaurants.

This castle sits on a hill, but is not as visible from a distance as Bardi or others. It was however the best of the 3 we visited. There is a price to enter, that I think was 4e. The frescos are still incredible, and you can walk unescorted around much of the ground and 2nd floor. The territorial view... More
