Super castle, stunning location. Well preserved. Very Good visitor experience, with access to the castle inside and out, including prison tower, reception halls, and even a gallery (with a fab collection of paintings by Viktoriya Bubnova, from July to Sept 2016)

A cosy and nice area, the keep is inhabited as it was always. A nice festival took place when we were there.

This is a small castle on the hill in Poppi. The views from the tower especially are stunning, though the old wooden staircase is not for the faint hearted. Inside the main castle many rooms are not open to the public and the main hall has been unfortunately modernised to enable it to hold public events and weddings losing some... More

Very beautiful and unusual place to visit: the castle is very interesting and the library is really amazing with a lot of ancient books. There's also the Italian version of Diderot's Encyclopedie. A visit is really recommended to all the people that are travellers and not tourists.

High atop the valley peak is this castle with great views. Easy access to all areas including the bell tower which is usually off limits in other castles. Climbing to the top required some twisting and turning as the ladder hugged the low ceiling. Be warned if you are there on the half hour plug your ears the bells are... More

A walk thru the streets of Poppi up to the Castle - so picturesque! You can climb its tower - wander the rooms - imagine the life that has occupied the space.

Count Guidi was one of the bad guys in Dante's Inferno, and he should know because he stayed with him here in this castle. This is the most beautifully preserved medieval castle I've seen. Go when the tour includes the beautiful library. I just took a small group of my college students and they are still swooning. All literate and... More

This 12th century medieval castle was fun to explore. The views from the upper walkways as well as tower are amazing. The self guided tour through the castle and its many winding staircases and hidden rooms really give you a taste of how it must have been when the castle was inhabited. Make sure you climb to the top of... More

If you like tradition it's a great place to be loved it. The coffee terrace very relaxing specially the senary. And the village it's self is a lot to see specially if you like churches like me.
