A place to visit. It is a medieval castle not to far from Florence in the Casentino countryside. It is on the top of a hill in a strategic position .. So wonderful panorama and very nice village around. It is a place full of history XII-XIII century

Life in the 1300s was political and vindictive! Come and see this castle, learn about the feuding parts of Italy and who won! The castle itself is also very nice and you'll enjoy the views.

Came here with our 15yr old daughter and spent 2 hours wandering around the various rooms and listening to the audio guide. Excellent value at €5 each & a lovely outdoor café located just over the road.

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
