The Sunset Tour was a pretty cool tour of the castle grounds and the museum about the Ricasoli family, but the best part of the tour was the amazing view – it literally is so beautiful and expansive that it looks fake! Don’t expect an...More

5 Euro to visit the castle walls, church and tomb. Great views - can’t visit inside the castle. It is a uphill walk from public parking on uneven stone walkway- so not for the unhealthy... nice restroom. At base of hill is the wine room-...More

Though you cannot actually visit inside the castle, the view from the look off is beautiful! Also, the Wine Shop is quite attractive!

Tuscany is loaded with castles. You can spend days visiting them all. We asked the visitor center in Siena to recommend one. They couldn’t (and probably shouldn’t). Each is unique. But we believe that folks with just a half day or so would not be...More

We visited with our tour group two weeks ago. The castle is beautiful, very impressive and like a fortress standing on a hilltop. There is so much history present there. The views from up the walls were amazing, we could even see Siena from there....More

We turned into the gates and the drive up the hill to the castle was amazing. It was hemmed in on both sides by very old cypress trees, and as you approach the tall imposing castle walls, you could imagine all the past battles fought...More

We booked the privilege tour that costs 125 € per person. The castle was really splendid, tasting was made in the gorgeous family dining room. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable, but I wish the would be so.
