Decent signage. A good sense of the space can be had by walking the inner part and then around the walls. There are good views from the tower.

Unfortunately it was not open inside but you could still walk round the outer walls of this huge castle. Impressive views of the surrounding countryside.

Family took us to see this ancient castle. There was a minimal fee to get in. There were quite a few signs explaining about the castle. The signs were in both Italian and English. I think this would be a good place to take children.

Definitely visit this site. Gigantic Fort built by Frederick II, massive and impressive. Views of countryside are spectacular.

This is an enormous example of a fort built in early times. Well worth a look inside and also a walk around the outside.

This is a huge castle, unfortunately only the walls are standing - and one tower with a video display - however with a bit of imagination there's plenty to see. Walk round, look at what remains and make up a story.

Inside this place there isn't much to see.....the main thing that's still standing (after all this time) is the walls. So the walk around the castle was the highlight. And big it is, almost one kilometer in total. Great walk!! Inside there's one tower you...More

First time I went in a fortress! Inside there are just ruins from different ages, but the walk in the tower is available and it's actually impressive to see the landscape around and to know that you are in a place where hundreds of years...More

What a shame because the structure merits its fame even if not much has survived except walls and tower. It would be very striking with the floodlights but at that time it was not to be.
