The tour was very interesting and there is quite a bit to see in terms of the various rooms of the castle itself and some great examples of furniture.

There are generally 3 kinds of castles; hunting castles; pleasure castles; and defense castles. This is a defense castles; but we learned on the tour, this castle was never attacked!! There is a large fireplace that is interesting!

The castle is very beautiful including extremely well preserved frescos. The guide was intelligent and very thorough. We very much enjoyed going from room to room and around the outside of the building. Personally, I learned a lot from the little tour.

Drove here from Aosta. Wanted to buy tickets and was informed that you need to join a group of ca. 25 people to see the castle. OK, has been the case in many places. Not allowed to just look by yourself. Then we were informed...More

The castle itself looked amazing, standing proud up on its hill. After climbing up to the entrance we found that only groups were allowed, no individual visits, and the tours were in Italian. Whilst we considered joint a group just to see the inside, we...More
