Lots of history and what a view

Went with a local friend who knows the place. Lots of history and lots of things to discover and see in the rooms. Really loved the garden and the view from there.

If you go to Fumone castle then bring cash! The little souvenir shops, bar and some retaurants below the castle, and the castle itself do not take credit cards. The cost for a guided tour of the castle is €10 with no reduced priced for teens. You only get to tour a fraction of the castle because the owners reside... More

You will step back in time when you explore this castle. There were very few tourists, other than school children when we were there in April. We found it very interesting. The view from the top is wonderful!

If you're into castles (and I am) Fumone is well worth the detour. Perched at the top of a pretty village, with beautiful gardens, and full of history, I enjoyed my afternoon visiting the castle immensely. This isn't a big property, so it can't be compared to a Versailles or Chambord, but it has a charm all its own and... More

We were very lucky to have a guy from Rome translate the tour information for us. It was a very interesting place with some very unusual exhibits and well worth a visit. Price a bit steep at €10 an adult, without a fortuitous translator, it would not be worth it......

Wonderful historical place, full of stories to tell, from popes to knights. Magnificent view over the valley (well, it was built there just for commanding the area!)

The castle offers the opportunity to visit the cell where Pope Celestine, the Pope of the Great Refusal mention in Dante's Divine Comedy, was imprisoned and died. You can also enjoy a beautiful panorama over the surrounding countryside.

I went in May and the opening time was merely a suggestion. The castle itself was fine, but nothing too memorable except maybe the wax covered boy that is thought to haunt the castle. The gardens, if better maintained, could be lovely, wiht some great views. Sadly, the whole place was a little moth eaten. It is the highlight of... More

We took a tour of the castle and were surprised by the amount of history and many stories. The castle contains the largest roof garden in Europe.

When you approach the entrance to the castle it is not that impressive. However, once inside it is full of interesting artefacts & steeped in history; particularly regarding Papal matters. The roof garden is totally unexpected & provides good 360 degree views of the surrounding village & the countryside. Part of the castle is not accessible as the family still... More
