The best castle/fortress in Italy. Stunning views from all angles. Incredible history. Not overrun by tourist. Fantastic bar/cafe at foot of the fortress.

This was such a fun way to share a bit of the rich history of the area with our 6 and 9 year old nephews. Exploring the fortress really allows the imagination to run. The lack of crowds and the quality of the restoration really made it feel like we stepped back in time. If you're traveling with or without kids, this is well worth the detour. Plus, the view from the top of the tower can't be beat!

With its very cheap price(4€) and great view from the top of a scenic lovely Tuscan countryside this fortress is a magical place to relax and enjoy your visit in Tuscany. It is visible from literally everywhere and the view from the top of the fortress is accordingly stunning. What's more, the place breathes with history. The fortress contains also a muzeum which is not particularly big, but the reconstructions of the fortress from a different time periods are quite interesting. The only downside is that there is no english on the pannel, nevertheless, the fortress and the countryside around it is a definite a must see.

Just what you would expect from an old fortress. Really stunning views from the top of the tower. There is also a little restaurant with a friendly owner. All in all it's worth to go here.
