We were on a walking tour of the area and approached the castle from the back road. Unfortunately we only had credit cards and they only take cash so we couldn't go into the castle, but the locals were lovely and with a few "desoles" echoing in our ears we walked around it and down through the famous and beautiful village to the riverside.
Next day, with cash on hand, we walked up again (don't listen to the moaners, it's an easy stroll if you take your time and you should because there's a photo op at every corner) and spent a wonderful hour or two exploring the interior and catching the views. From the top you can look literally straight down to the village about 200m below.
I recommend visiting in June because there were only about 20 other people there, but don't miss it and do start from the bottom unless you are carrying small children.
