Hiking up to this castle offers excellent view of the upper and lower town. The castle itself doesn't have much to see, but the view of hiking and climbing on top of the castle are worth to climb

You pay Euro 3.00 pp to get inside. The museum may be interesting only to the true Italy history fans. But the views from the tower are amazing.

Closed for renovations, we just walked around the gardens that were pleasant enough, including, bizarrely, a tank.

If you were to do one thing in the area, make sure you walk up here to see the views. Walk all around the grounds and get panoramic views that are amazing.

Castle exhibition was not translated into English so could not tell but I do not think any info on this was given. Try the castle itself.
