The location is splendid, with view from the monte Amiata to most of Chianti area. The castle itself is a XIX° century (re)construction, impossible to visit inside. So panoramas and wines are the main reason for a visit, which requires a certain time because the...More

This castle has an amazing history and view of this part of Tuscany. The architecture was inspiring and to walk along the upper walls was a thrill.

This magnificent castle is the creation of the man who succeeded Cavour, who was the first Prime Minister of Italy. However as it is still the home of the Ricasolis, visits do not include the interior (except by arrangement via a tour operator). The €5...More

Castello has a great history and lovely grounds. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertained all of our questions. We had the Classic Tour which lasted a little over two hours and featured a tasting of three wines at the very end. Very enjoyable!

The tour of the castle was amazing with absolutely beautiful views of all of tuscany. You also get a free glass with your tour at the wine tasting room back in town. Would highly recommend stopping here.

There's free parking below then a good walk up to the castle but definitely worth the effort. Beautiful grounds with an interesting sculpture display and a beautiful crypt. Then a short drive to the wine tasting along the road which is included in the price.

I write a review about a castle in Tuscany, and you want me to tell you what it "costs" to visit someplace in ROME? Get serious. You need to learn about a little think called "Google".
