Difficult to review as not the best of castles you can visit. The signage around was unhelpful and nothing to really engage. The cafe at the top looked uninviting as well. Saying this though if you are in Brescia then you should definitely visit for...More

There are a lot of steps to get to the top but well worth it as the views are stunning , we stopped just before the top where there was a beautiful bar (near a car Park)

What an incredible castle. The grounds are extensive and beautifully maintained. The views over Brescia are fabulous. We visited for an afternoon with children aged 3 and 7, and the whole family loved it. We really couldn’t believe that the entry was free. So much...More
