No wonder prince Maximillian fell in love with the location at first sight! There were renovations going on, but not too disturbing. great place for a picnic too

The scenery from inside the castle, the detailed architectural plans, the unique decorated rooms and the story of this castle and its inhabitants are very interesting and worth admiring!

“Castle by the sea”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

A truly beautiful castle with stuning views over the Adriatic. It's surrounded by gardens and you can go swimming nearby.
You can also tour the interior for a few Euros ( kids free). This is pleasant rather than outstanding, but it gives a nice sense of history of Austro-Hungary and Italy.

“A must see if you are in Trieste”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We toured the castle on a sunny Sunday afternoon and learned so much about Maximilian and the history of the area. It was fascinating to see copies of the original drawings for the castle designed in the 1860's. The setting of the castle is amazing, overlooking the Adriatic, it's a must see if you are in the area of Trieste.

“Nice garden, "average" palace”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The view and the walk in the park is beautiful, during a sunny day; wide variety of plants and flowers. The "castle" is the vacation villa of Ferdinand Maximilian of Habsburg, archduke of Austria and the emperor of Mexico. The interior is very rich, adorned and well preserved, because has been built around 1850. It is not my kind of style and there are so many other historical attractions; but if you are there I would suggest to pay the 4 euros for the visit (specially if you are interested in that historical period and family)
