We walked up to this castle in the very hot sun. It was worth seeing the beautiful gardens but I personally didn't enjoy the endless rooms full of dolls and more dolls. Don't get me wrong I like dolls, toys and pictures etc but the rooms were hot and endless. The views from the top of this castle were spectacular and mesmerizing. You could see some of the other islands across the beautiful lake. The restaurant gardens were also wonderful to look at, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the kiwis growing there! Actually on the long, hot, sweaty walk up I did spy a pomegranate tree too!

As we were staying in Angera, I visited this place twice by walking up from town. Google Maps was helpful and you can see the castle from town. The first time, I wandered in the courtyard and the garden and around the outside looking EVERYWHERE for the entrance to the historical part. I finally asked inside the Special Exhibition and they explained where to enter under the arches and up the stairs. Just one sign would have helped, as I was interested in seeing it first. Then I did visit the doll museum, which was not my primary interest. I managed to climb to the highest point and have the place to myself before a tourist group arrived. Since I was on my own, again, signs would have been helpful, though it was fun to "discover" the small doorways that led up to the tower. Fabulous views on a beautiful day. The cafe is superb with service that is on point. I ordered a marocchino, which surpassed any mocha I have had in the US. The second visit was just as good, with less confusion, but I told several visitor where to enter the tower. I visited the Special Exhibition, and see the logic of the entrance, but noticed very few people came in, even on Saturday. We enjoyed the entire place.

A magical find with amazing Frescoes & Paintings & an incredible doll collection including animatronics. We parked in the free car park at the entrance. The only let down is the poor documentation. On this occasion we even wished there was an audible tour available. When we were there, we almost had the castle to ourselves. Also stunning views as you wind your way higher and higher inside the castle.

This attraction is definitely worth a visit but access to the Castle on foot from the boat service is dreadful. It's a 30-minute plus - uphill walk with little or no signage at the start. A simple golf style cart or mini bus would be useful for elderly visitors. So those not used to hiking up hill will need to catch a taxi from the Angera boat station. Once you have caught your breath and inside it is one of the attractions to see if in the area. The coffee in the café is expensive compared to local prices. The walk back is naturally slightly quicker!!
