  • One of the most amazing places to visit. We fell in love with it when having a tour and had our wedding a year later.
  • It was a very different castle when it comes to arcitecture. Concerning the guided tour it was really bad. We got an audio guide in english and then we where in a group with Italians that where guided by a woman that spoke very loud in italian so it was almost impossible to hear the audio guide.
