Walked to the castle with 2 four-year old kids. It was a fun walk, with a few challenging sections for little kids. We were able to make it to the base section (not the towers). Some great views. Was hoping this might occupy a few...More

Impressive castle. Turned into an exposition hall on the inside, hiding a lot of the original castle. The top has great views of the coastline.

I can definitely recommend this place for the rooftop view alone, it's awesome. Besides, they have a little but interesting museum, a XII sec. church and they host exhibitions as well.

Castello di Lerici is a symbol of this little town. Paleontological museum is located there. Amazing view from the "top"!

The view from the top of the castle is beautiful and you can sea the sun going down behind Porto Venere. If you go there when there is an exposition go to see it!

What a great place for history, seeing building that old, still in great condition is a testament to the craftsmanship of the builders

Went there twice during our stay in Lerici! The view of the Golfo dei Poeti was incredible. Good for an evening romantic walk. We managed to get in for free as they had some sort of modern art exhibition that day

Overlooking Lerici village and Bay is this ancient fort. Frequently host art exposition, probably to give some new fame to this old (and a bit forgotten by local) monument. Great views over the Lerici Gulf and Golfo dei Poeti toward Portovenere.
