The town is small and very ancient with small houses and narrow allayes. Found a nice restaurant with exellent pasta! Take the time to walk around the fortress.

Very well preserved/restored medieval town and a spectacular fortress with gorgeous views of idyllic landscape. For a couple of moments I felt like being on the Game of Thrones set somewhere in King's Landing. Italy has many hidden gems, this is definitely one of them....More

Well worth the trip to get here. The fortress is well preserved and a reasonable entrance fee charged. If, like us, you like to see and take in everything then allow a couple of hours for your visit. Be prepared for a steep climb to...More

The second largest Fort in Europe and its history is interesting. I have seen numerous Forts around the United States and I have seen machu pichu, and this one is interesting and worth the visit of you're near.

Alla fortezza si accede a piedi in salita su una comoda stradina e dopo lla prima entrata c'è la biglietteria. il parcheggio auto resta fuori le mura ma dal parcheggio all'ingresso della fortezza ci vorran circa 5/ 10 minuti a piedi. Durante la mia visita non ho visto ne bar ne ristorante all'interno.
