The walk up to the castle would be a little too stiff for someone not used to strenuous walks, but is worth the effort for those who are able. The path leads from the Via Nuova Provinciale Chiunzi (a sign marks the way on the...More

Don't let the hike deter you from this one of a kind view! From the beach it takes a bit under an hour to hike up the roughly 800 steps, winding through little neighborhoods and lemon groves. Once you get to the top, you're greeted...More

after climbing up 700 plus steps, the castle has fantastic views of the bay, and the owner is very knowledgeable about the finds + location, remember to take plenty of drinks and snack as no shop/cafe at the top!!

Really steep walk through houses and by lemon groves but well worth it for the fabulous view. Quaint old guy given history lesson and showing medieval and Roman finds from within the castle. Well worth the small entrance fee by means of a donation.
