They only have two tables on the terrace where you have no view of the mountains. They have a three course menu and that leaves you not many choices to choose from. But it’s nice to have a place to rest, have a drink and...More

This castle, with multiple buildings, some 5-stories tall, is a magical place, with nooks and tables under pergolas for sitting and relaxing. The buildings alone are a sight to see, with vestiges of chimneys, and elaborate frescoes. The grounds are beautifully maintained with roses and...More

Fun. Be prepared to walk up steep a hill. Very interesting place with great views and an excellent little restaurant which is worth the visit itself.

We went on a day when there were a lot of people and so we could only find a parking spot about half way up. The walk is steep and there were loads of slippery cobbles which, without the correct footwear, might be difficult for...More

We just happened upon this wonderful castle! Driving in from Milan, we saw the sign and just pulled in. What a treasure! It's beautiful, well maintained and some parts still under renovation. The beautiful rooms with murals is like stepping back in time! We explored...More

A short hike up the hill and you will gain the rewards from your efforts. You will see the most breathtaking views of the valley. The castle has two secrets. One of them is the frescoes of the 14th century that retain their vivid color...More

We actually arrived at the Castle by taking a hiking trail which started near our B&B in Avio. This was a great end to our hike and each area/room/section of the castle was interesting and filled with historical background. It's not a super-long tour or...More

We stopped here on the way to destinations in Austria, the day turned out to be one of my life's most favorite days, ever... Words don't do the memories justice so I'll leave it to the other reviewers... It was Life Experience Day...

Unfortunately we came in a period of the year when the castle itself was closed so we could only delight ourselves in the amazing views of the valley bellow. I guess visiting the castle can only add to that.
