Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were able to walk to the castle from our resort. Once we came to the entrance we were told how to go on the tour.
We first went to the top up the tiny curvy steps all 92 of them to the top. It was amazing how far we could see and even located our resort.
The history we were able to read was unbelievable and the pictures too.
The castle took over 300 years to construct.
At the end the people who worked there gave us so much history.
Like it was a prison for many years. Many different people lived in the castles over the years.

Castello Orsini is one of the landmarks in Soriano Nel Camino. If you visit this commune, you need to visit this castle. The view from the tower is amazing but beware the path to the castle is steep, but doable.

Great wee castle with fab views. Only 5 euro to get in. A tower to climb up with the spiral staircase was an experience- dint do if you are claustrophobic

Guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Visitors should be in good health and able to walk on uneven surfaces and climb narrow stairs.

Once we got to the castle the guy explained a brief history and layout to us and let us get on with it. I climbed to the top of the tower while Deb stayed on the ground floor. It was four flights up a spiral staircase with no pauses as you couldn't visit any of the rooms in the keep. Once on the roof the views were predictably amazing, you really could see for miles. After walking the circuit of the roof I carefully made my way down the stairs and we then visited the prison. This was a proper detention facility with single cells, no windows and a real sense of losing liberty, even though we knew the doors were open!
The tour continued with a visit to the armoury where there some mail armour and a few swords on display. There was an exhibition of WW1 memorabilia including some of the horrendous trench fighting weapons but we couldn't read anything as it was all in Italian. Two rooms were dedicated to photography of the local area which was very good and gave us a couple of idea for other places to visit. We then left the castle and spent more time exploring the side streets before reaching the main square and having a coffee and cake.

I have seen photos of Orsini Castello for years. What a treat it is to see in person and to climb to the top where the views are heavenly. It is a self guided tour and not for anyone who has mobility issues. It is a steep climb to get to the castle and then many steps and inclines within the walls.
Wear comfortable shoes!

This is easily accessible from the town. It is a little bit of a climb but we enjoyed the walk through the old cobblestone streets. There are some interesting basic displays of artifacts. The gem of this place is the audio and video display. The older gentleman was well educated on all the devices and even though we did not speak Italian, it was easy to understand the devices he was demonstrating. There was a nice gentleman on the tour that helped interpret many things the older gentleman showed us. I only wish we were there earlier so we could see all the demonstrations.

Great for views, large phonograph, radio collection with an enthusiastic curator. Only open on weekends and lots of steps to climb.

The castle was nice. But not decorated, nor ornate as others in Europe. A lot of the walls have been whitewashed and houses some unimpressive styles of paintings. The best thing was the music room. There is a man that demonstrates many of the organ pieces. The castle is only open on weekends and there is little else to see in this city.

We visited in the early morning on Sunday, and were greeted by a wonderful tour guide. He spoke to us about the general history of the Castle and then we basically had the place to ourselves to explore. Interesting history of this building. Then we spent some time hearing an older gentleman speak and play music on phonographs and other items over the ages. A great musical collection to see and hear. Best view over Soriano from the roof of the castle. Highly recommended.
