I am unsure if you can access by car, we chose to walk and it was steep but very do-able, a charming attraction complete with your own personal tour guide...make sure you take some euros to donate to the restoration and upkeep.

We did this walk one morning - not worth all the effort as when you get to the top it's all locked up and looks uninhabited!

Nice little visit...there's a guy there that will show you around the lower entry area and the 'bedroom' in the tower. Then you can walk up and see some old Roman houses and other ruins.

Non c'è nessuna tariffa da pagare ma un offerta per contribuire ai lavori di manutenzione è sempre ben accetta :D
