This is such a beautiful place, evocative of ancient times. The place is vast, and you can imagine it being filled with people selling their wares and living their lives within its protective walls in the past. A series of little (and large!) museums inside give you a glimpse of architecture and sculpture from ancient times, including an unfinished Michelangelo. Personally, I couldn't picture how it could have ever been finished given the extent of the carving that had already taken place which left little room for development but then I can't even barely cut even slices of cake, never mind a statue out of a single piece of marble.
The only drawback was the drawbridge and courtyard filled with muggers trying to offer bracelets for "free", who would apparently then gang up on tourists to demand money for their gift. In some ways they're almost a throwback to the castles original inhabitants, whether selling cheap handbags or "friendship bracelets", though I think they need a quick trip to the dungeon rather than pestering tourists!
