“Very interesting museum of Etruscan art”
Review of Forte Sangallo

The collection of Etruscan art in Forte Sangallo is very beautiful and impressive. I have already seen the Villa Giulia in Rome and was curious about the collection in Forte Sangallo. It was well worth the visit. The castle itself is also interesting from an architecture and historical perspective.

The visit is for free but can only be done under supervision and guidance of a person from the staff. The explanations given by the staff (in italian) were very interesting. Please take note that visits can only occur on an hourly basis. We arrived at 15:40 and had to wait until 16:00 before the guided tour could start. We were out at 17:00.

There was not enough time to see the whole collection in 1 hour, I hope to see the rest another time if I am in the area.

The building is beautiful and the history is magnificent, but if I rated the place only for that then all of Italy would be 5 stars. I have lived in Civita Castellana for several months now and have tried to visit the city's namesake castle several times. Every time I go, either the ticket office is closed or the person sitting inside is not interested in providing any information for tourists. Actually, it seems as if the only tourist attraction in the entire town is more often closed than open. Sometimes I wonder why Civita isn't trying harder to attract tourists to relieve some of the pain caused by the recession- then I remember how poorly managed the tourist attractions in town are, and I realize that it's a lost cause. The few times that I actually HAVE managed to get into Forte Sangallo, I have been impressed. The structure is fantastic and worth a visit. If you aren't Italian, or if you don't speak Italian, good luck! You'll need it!
