Unlike some other visitors experience we had a really excellent guide who spoke in both italian and english. The tour was unhurried with plenty of time to view the fantastically fresh frescos which tell the family history ( both real and untrue!) Worth every euro.

This is a very interesting place to visit. This castle has beautiful and very well preserved frescoes that are not to be missed. The park is also delightful to walk in. This attraction has not been open that long and lessons are still being learned....More

Nice, but very bad information for tourist. The guides are very morivated, but for non Italian it's an absolute no-go

This could be an absolute gem of a visit. A wonderful palace castle nestling in the Eugenean Hills with superb frescos. Instead a tour group is rushed around inside with a garralous Italian-speaking guide giving little time to admire or study the frescos. Non-Italian speakers...More

It is true that this castle needs a lot of restorations, but I assure you that every euro that visitors pay is used for the villa. The big problem is that we do not earn enough money for all necessary works :-( Thanks for visiting...More
