It is like a "back to the past" travel. Here you can find silence, natural beauty, nature, peace. You will want to stay there forever... and the views? Just amazing.

Bus driver couldn't be bothered to stop for two people at the bus stop or it requires a special dance we don't know. Walk is 40 minutes and that's a little tough after already visiting two of the three castles we paid to see. The...More

The castle is situated overlooking Bellinzona, south to Lake Maggiore and north into the Ticino Alps. There is a small exhibition of Ticino life but the highlight is to scale the ramparts and the highest tower to drink the view!!! Great vistas of the other...More

This castle is the highest one of the three Bellinzona castles. The drive up the winding, narrow roads make for an adventure but the amazing views are worth it. You can even catch a cute little mechanical, rubber wheeled train that takes you between this...More

Sasso Corbaro is the the highest of the three castles in Belinzona and the smaller of the three. Reaching it by car through narrow single lane road is quite an experience. The view is spectacular. This castle has its own character compared to the other...More

Castello di Sasso Corbaro is located higher than the other two castles in town. Built in 1479, so it's the youngest. Museum is in the keep and requires an admission fee, but the grounds are free to stroll around in. Spectacular views of Bellinzona and...More
