“Don't miss the intimate and wide-ranging museums!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Best 3 euros we spent: all museums, 5 more euros for English audio guides for two, English info sheets in each gallery/room. No crowd when we visited, able to get up close to objects, photos allowed, no flash . So much to see! Allow at least 2-3 hours. Wish they had more postcards in the gift shop!

“Easily accessible from the Duomo”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Lovely castle, with fountain to the front, and lovely views from the back. Easily accessible from the Duomo. Only negative is the abundance of hwkers present outside the castle.

“Bizarre and fascinating structure”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Fascinating castle, which appears to have grown organically. Little coherence, and as a consequence you keep looking at surprising details.

“Public Park”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Built in the 15th century, it is one of the largest citadels in Europe! Today the grounds are used as a public park and it is beautiful. A great spot for a picnic!

“Not exactly a hidden treasure”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

The castle and its grounds are huge, so it would be hard to call this a hidden treasure. But the onsite museum is excellent, with a wide range of fascinating offerings--from art to archaeology, artifacts to musical instruments, ceramics to coins. A real treat!
