Wonderful castle

This is an excellent example of a medieval Tuscan castle. It was fully restored in the late 19th century - and is hence is really fine condition. Worth a visit for sure!

The Poppi castle is a nice castle in the small village of Poppi. Especially at night is very beautiful from the outside. It is in very good condition and is worth a visit

A fascinating and beautiful castle. We travelled there from Monte Benichi which took us over a switchback road - beautiful scenery but a bit headache inducing. On arrival we were glad to see a cafe in the square outside the castle with a toilet! The castle is great. There is a small charge to enter. A trip up the tower... More

The castle has been well renovated. It was a prisoner of war centre in WW2. We knew one of the prisoners so wanted to see where he had been. A must is to climb the high tower ( if I can do it at 75 you can all do it) and the view is worth the effort. After your visit... More

Beautiful castle which you can visit without restriction. Very small place which immediately idea is - as it was living in hundreds of years back. Worth visit, take some time to walk in peace and enjoy.

Beautiful castle and well worth seeing. The climb to the top was a bit narrow but the view was fell worth it. You can get an audio guide for no extra charge but I had to ask (it was not volunteered). The audio guide added a lot of interesting background to the experience.

I was able to see some of the oldest Dante manuscripts on vellum with student marginalia from centuries ago! This was an extraordinary privilege.

If you love castles and staircases this is the place to visit! Part of the medieval town this castle is an excellent place to visit with split floors and many staircases. The colour on the walls is also reflective of the era, so well worth the €5 entrance fee.

A castle that is being maintained and so worth the small entry fee. The internal staircases were amazing
