This was a very short tour maybe 20 min max and it was guided. It only cost 3 euro and the guides are very knowledable about the castle and timeframes. Nice old history in the castle

When I visited this site in 2010 the two tour guides spoke only Italian or French. The castle's history is somewhat murky and it has had a number of additions to it throughout the centuries. The most interesting aspects of the castle are the original...More
