A quick 10 minute walk to the castle from the centre of town with nice views and a park where you can sit. Inside was lovely and cool with good information on each room. Particularly interesting were the private "en suite" toilets. You can get...More

Interesting historic place which I can recommend for everyone interested in medieval buildings and castles. On your way to the castle you first walk through the old town of Sarteano which is as it has been since medieval times. Very interesting atmosphere, then you enter...More

The castle/fort has been restored and is quite sparse inside. However we were lucky to see a photographic exhibition which was taking place inside and was a great counterpoint to the architecture. Well worth a visit for the amazing views from the top.

A perfect sized castle for this small town. I spent an hour or two exploring with very few people around

Amazing views, worth it alone for that! Entry it only €4 and kids go free. We visited with very young kids who loved it. Steps are very steep and narrow so not suitable if you have any mobility issues. No refreshments are available so bring...More

I truly enjoyed this visit because the rooms were well preserved. Medieval sinks, toilets, fireplaces and graffiti (from 1504) was on display. I loved that they allow you to enter one of the defense towers, too!
