Great views to Ischia. The route around the castle is well signed so you see everything. There is an elevator to get to the top as well.

Best visited on a cool day as there are quite a few steps. The churches are simple but beautiful. There is a lift up to the first level.

I must have missed something. Other than the truly spectacular views, I found this place to be rather lacking in soul. A glorious centuries-long history is presented in the most basic fashion, the spartan restorations leaving too much to the imagination (and I have a...More

We were really surprised at just how good it was. Lots of steps, I wouldn’t recommend for anyone with walking difficulties, but every one else, go! Well worth the money, it took us around 2 hours with not too many people there. Great views!

We thought we were being clever by doing a castle tour in the rain. We were not. Turns out, castles are very open in the upper parts, so we were soaking wet. At one point, the stair cases were rivers and we were just trying...More

I found this little island and castle on Ischia to be absolutely stunning and the history truly fascinating. There's a lift for those not able to climb steep steps but you still need to be able to negotiate a number of ancient carved rock stairs...More

This unbelievable castle is quite an exciting and interesting visit. It's history and architecture are outstanding. The views of Ischia add to the enjoyment of the experience. It could use more brochures explaining many of the features. A guide would be helpful also.

There is a lift to the top of the mound, the pathways are undulating but should be ok if you take your time. There are plenty of places to take a rest (seats all around) and there are places to take a drink or refreshments... More
