The stairs leading to the Castle are a world heritage site and are worth seeing on its own. The castle is a marvellous structure and a great value of 2.50 Euros on a weekday. A guided tour would have been great, but the views are...More

I was there on a rainy day with lots of fog. It was nice to walk the castle but the views were next to nothing. It would probably be a lot better on a sunny day.

I'm not sure because it's a no working day in Italy, but I guess so. Opening hours from 8.30am to 7.30 pm but the ticket shop closes at 6.30.
