“Dinosaur Exhibit Not Worth It”
Review of Castello di Lerici

Castello di Lerici
Reviewed April 27, 2012

We wanted to go into the Castello and see the view up there. The view was very nice but not worth the admission (which had to be paid). We ended up skipping the Dinosaur Exhibit.

It is really nice to sit on sea side benches and have dinner and also to climb Castle...Keep at least three hours to go around narrow streets

Castle offers great views down to Lerici and to the sea but inside there was not much to see.

My daughter was married at this castle. She arranged the whole wedding with an italian wedding planner and chose this castle for the ceromony and celebrations. From the coastline it looks rather severe as obviously is was used as a fortification and is not a pretty castle. However there is a very interesting small museum of dinosaurs in part of it which adds interest. The steps in parts are very steep up to the summit but there is a lift which operates halfway up once the steps become steeper. The trip to the top is worth the effort as the view is amazing as one would imagine from a castle that was used as a defence. The wedding ceremony was held right on the top of the castle so it was a fairytale setting overlooking the beautiful Bay of Poets and as the darkness fell lanterns were placed all along the ramparts and the coastal towns came into their own with all their twinkling lights. Obviously not everyone is priviledged to be there for a wedding and also at night but I would still recommend a trip to the castle if staying in the area as it gives the traveller such a wonderful view of all the surrounding sea and country and definitely not to be missed.
