Review of Castel Beseno

Castel Beseno

The Castle is not advertised a lot, but it's really worth to visit it if you stay in Trentino or Garda Lake. It is located not far from Trento, on a hill that dominates the Adige valley. The Castle is well preserved and very well maintained. It is clean, personnel is present and there are pic-nic areas as well as entertainment sites for kids. We really enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone. Tickets are low, with many possibilities for reductions (IKEA family too!).

I was a bit apprehensive in driving up the steep climb to the castle, but once on the road up, it was not too bad at all. An impressive historical monument, which one should visit preferably in the morning before the heat strikes. Proper walking shoes is a requirement to walk the steep walkway to the Castelo It's worthwhile to watch the very informative film of ca 25 minutes before exploring the Castelo. It is also impressive to learn and see just how much work, reconstruction effort had taken place over the years. Very well kept and beautiful greens between the walls. Huge grounds where one can roam about and explore. There is sanitary facilities and a Cafe for refreshments. The owners spoke English and served us a" killer" Panini and Aperol!!!

I've been living in Italy for 2 months and have visited a number of castles, and this has been my favorite because you can walk around freely (self-guided tour) and there's so much to see. The grounds and castle itself are immense and you could spend hours walking around seeing everything. They have nice exhibits and allow you to be hands-on with the artifacts, whereas most other castles have strict no touch policies and tour guides watching you like a hawk. You can even put on armor and handle old weapons. It's really nice for going at your own pace and well worth the 5 euro entrance fee.

From town we were a little confused about how to reach the castle but followed signs up to a parking lot, from where it's only about a 10 minute uphill walk. We had seen other information that said you had to hike from town, so we were very grateful for the parking lot.

Huge, well conserved, romantic...and just perfect :o)
We spent a whole day there, and left only because it was closing its gates in the evening...
Since that time, we compare all castles to this - and the winner is still il Castello di Beseno!
