Stopped off here on our tour of southern Italy. Lovely hill top town and fabulous castle. It was surprisingly empty when we visited; no crowds which was great to walk around this interesting structure with its fabulous views of the local area.

The first thing you see when reaching Celano is the big castle on the top of a hill. Go and visit it!

Decided to stop off cross country. Lovely village. The castle was impressive from the road and even more so as we followed the path round. Nice place to stop off.

So far this Castel impressed me the most in Central Italy. It has been fully restored and is in prestine condition. It is also a museum and can host weddings. Plenty of information is available. This is money well spent and very highly recommended.

Castello Piccolomini is a good place to visit if you are passing by or have a few hours to spare. The Castle is set in the heart of the town of Celano and it's easy to reach off the main autoroute E80. You can see...More

If you’re driving through Abruzzo from Rome to Pescara, there is no way you can miss this enormous fortification that dwarfs the surrounding town of Celano off of E80. In contrast to many of the hundreds of other castles in the area, it is in...More
