It’s a very calm and historic place, but with most of the buildings or site abandoned, except for the tour office and a few military outposts, this side trip was not worth it. Yes, I do agree with most reviews that ‘it is historical’, you...More

A place full of energy, historical. Calm place today, but the citadel was a "warm up" to the army, so you can almost hear the voices of the soldiers getting ready to some campaign when you close your eyes.

It is nice to go on a warm day, it is beautiful, historic and an amazing spot to watch the sunrise or sunset. Looks really like a scenario of a movie.

There are guided tours in the afternoon (first tour at 4pm). If there are enough tourists waiting for a tour in the morning, they will run the tour already in the morning a first time, but you never know. If you don't have a guided...More

The Cittadella is a huge fortress, and military 18th century stronghold. But now it lays in very poor conditions. And, be careful, in spite of expo 2015 advertisment it will be close next summer because of work in progress
