The fee to enter is quite modest: 2.50 Euros. The most interesting part was just walking around the grounds: up and down the stairs (which are a little tricky) encountering a new view every couple of steps along the top. Definitely a site to take...More

The view from the top of the castle is really an experience you have to see for yourself! It is not that hard to reach and is worth the small entrance fee. If you are in the area check it off your list!

Cheap entry and worth it! The view on top is very nice. The stairs are quite difficult to walk on especially when you are tall. You have to crunch to get through them. Not so many stairs, 50??? Perhaps less. Walking around the walls is...More

We paid 7€ (2adults.3young kids) and got an epic view in return. The stairs to the tower are a bit steep for the youngest ones, so be ready to create a small queue.

Following the title of my review - jump there while passing by, you won't regret. It is a tiny village with a single street, a museum and a tower. You have to buy ticket to enter both, or buy only Tower ticket as we did....More

While being in Tuscany we went to visiting the castle & the tower. For a small fee you can enter this great sightseeing & enjoying the great view from the tower (or castle in general). For a little extra fee you'll get the combi-ticket allowing...More

With two small kids was quite tricky to reach the top. The stairs inside the tower are sometimes narrow and steep. But the view and the walkways on this castle are worthy! Great attraction!

We were staying in a hotel nearby for a long weekend away from Florence. It was such a pretty little town to visit. Highly recommend!
