Nice castle to be slightly smaller than we expected. There was a nice interactive part for the kids (and adults!). Some parts translated into English which was fine for us. The staff is very kind and helpful

Nice visit. Beautifully restored castle, which dates from the Middle Ages. Interesting historical exhibition. Special features for kids. The visit of the castle can be combined with a visit of the Art Hall Boscotondo, just across the canal.
