Given all the lovely historic buildings, churches, forts etc in Italy I wouldn’t bother with this one. 5 euro for our carpark a good 10 minute walk away, 10 Euro per adult admission, and a series of bare rooms to see. Better to look at...More

There seems to be little info to relay about this site, so you walk through the empty castle in 15 minutes, and that’s all there is. The $10 euro tickets, and 5 euro parking, and 1 euro bus ride seemed like overkill. It is a...More

As we walked uphill from the car park where we got off our bus, the two of us were very excited. We planned our visit to Castel del Monte a long time ago, as soon as we found out that it was in fact an...More

We planned our trip to Andria to see the amazing Castel del Monte. As you approach the monte from the winding roadway, it looks like a strong fortress, but once you make the long, hot climb, there is not very much there. The road to...More

This 13th century octagonal shape castle sitting on rocky hill dominates the surrounding countryside of Apulia faces the Adriatic Sea. The castle was built using limestone, white marble and coral breccia which gives a pink marble look. As it is a UNESCO world heritage site...More
