Interesting to go around the castle with a guide, this castle reminded us of Bodiam Castle in the UK. They also hold art exhibitions within the castle which I thought was a good touch although my husband disagreed with me!

We were in a way lucky to see the Castle in a fog. Mostly it is interesting due to shape of the buiding and the towers. Amazing building1

Perched on a hill, Castel del Monte, is a mystical and magical experience. Unique in it's kind, it's something you can't miss. Beautiful setting. During high season, parking location is about 1 km away. A bus takes you up. Guide book a must
