Where to start? Fantastic guided historical tour of a most impressive castle. The guide (Camille) very friendly, and oh so knowledgeable regarding the history of the location, the Ricasoli family and intimate life of Bettino Ricasoli. We toured the castle grounds and gardens, the Chapel...More

We had someone tell us we had to see this castle. It was okay at best. The views from the walls are beautiful. From the closest parking lot it is almost one half mile straight up a steep hill. Difficult climb for a few views....More

We visited on a sunny afternoon. We enjoyed a walk around the castle & gardens. You can have a guided tour, but our timing was out so we didn't bother. The building is impressive. Beautiful vistas from the terrace

I write a review about a castle in Tuscany, and you want me to tell you what it "costs" to visit someplace in ROME? Get serious. You need to learn about a little think called "Google".
