Quite small castle with superb views to the lake and town. They have entrance fee which includes small very interesting museum about the history, nature and geology of the lake Bolsena. The ole town itself is company but very beautiful.

It looks a lot more impressive from the outside. 5 euro per adult to enter. It also houses a museum, an observation deck and a poor excuse for an aquarium. So long as your expectations are low, you’ll be satisfied.

Historic building that has many surprises inside ....we paid 5 euros for the "packet" that included visiting the upper walls that gave a great panorama, a visit to the archaeological museum of the territory and entrance to the aquarium.

A cool place to stop and enjoy the scenery. The castle is located above the old part of the town, on a great cliff. All in all simple fun.

A hidden jewel, we stumbled across Bolsena and fell in love with medieval charm, the friendly people and the beautiful views of the lake and countryside.
