We walked along the river and enjoyed this small medieval settlement, we were there on a Monday when it was closed but it was good to walk around outside.

This is Turin's Portmerion - a wonderful, inspirational fake. Built in 1884 for the Turin Expo, it's as authentic a mediaeval village as it can be, and it's so pretty you almost wish you could have lived then - but then you remember the plague...More

Mostly a reconstruction but still actually quite nice and a nice guided visit of 45 minutes. Some guides speak several languages so ask before you book and you might get a guide that talks yours

The stores were partially closed, impossible to reach in wheelchair. The castle itself is not wheelchair friendly, so I had to give up my plan of going there. Sad that they care so little about people in wheelchair.

Walking through the area with the little shops is delightful, but the tour of the Castle is exceptional. The guide explains what each of the rooms was used for, and what the artifacts and utensils were used for. The very good tour is in Italian,...More

This place is pretty unique, should be visited. The only shame was that almost all shops in there were closed, including the facilities (maybe thats why the entry fee was zero). With a bit of an exaggeration one can say the only open thing in...More

The reconstructed buildings are replicas of existing medieval castles etc. There is supposed to be a boat service to the Borgo along the river, but at present it is out of service, so it is quite a long walk. It made a nice change from...More

we visited this reconstructed medieval village out of curiosity, and were delighted to find it very authentic. Many items were of interest to adults, but the younger ones would find lots to see and do, it is a must for a family visit,

A rather bleak look at medieval Italy. Some gift shops, but very little done to enhance ones visit. A longish walk through the park to get there, but it is free!

This replica of a medieval castle set in this wonderful park beside the river Po, is a delight and fun to explore. Definitely child friendly and something to spark the imagination.
