  • Can access the castle only by doing a reservation online. Gardens were small but really green and beautiful  more »
  • Super nice old castle. Beautiful paintings on all the walls and some of the sealings. Most of the information is only available in Italian. You need at least an hour to see the whole castle...  more »
  • Very nice to visit and see, has a good bar inside. But when we were there all the tickets to visit the main attraction - the tower - were already sold / booked. Maybe due to COVID. Pity
  • My husband and I were very well received at the entrance. We love the museum. We took advantage and went to visit the Torre L'Aquila.
