The Castello di Bracciano - a stone's throw from Rome - is one of the most impressive castles in Italy, Europe and the world. Completed in 1485 by the Orsini family, around an existing 12th century Vico fortress, it is one of the few renaissance castles in Italy that - thanks to the Odescalchi family - is open to the public. It also plays host to numerous weddings, galas and important cultural events throughout the year.

Took a trip out by train from Rome. Worth the hour journey from Rome San Pietro station. Great views across the lake and very interesting self guided tour round this beautiful castle. The town is also worth a look round with its quaint streets.

Beautiful place for a day trip from cruise ship, it was very hot day. Very uneven steps so not suitable for immobile. Not much to see inside castle but the views are lovely.

You will find out what it is like to go back 700 years. Castle is fully intact and spectacular views of town and the lake below. It's lively with tours and wedding receptions. It's a not miss if visiting Bracciano.

We spent an hour or so self guided around this lovely castle. If you're interested in ancient architecture and history you'll love the castle itself, views are amazing onto the lake.
