  • Such a beautiful castle, it seems like one you would find in a fairy tale. We bought the tickets online, you need the Green Pass to enter. We booked our slot for midday, our guide was very good and she explained the interesting history of the Rocchetta and its owner. The tour lasts an hour. The price of the ticket is very reasonable. Not very far from here there is a quaint medieval village to visit, it is called La Scola.
  • An absolute pleasant surprise! We were a group of 6 and both adults and kids enjoyed it. The lady that walked us through was excellent.
