Castle Beseno was our favorite of the three castles we saw in the Trento region. We spent about 2 hours exploring Beseno. It is more like a fortress type castle rather than a palace for royalty. Roofs and parts of walls are missing. It is...More

The Castle is not advertised a lot, but it's really worth to visit it if you stay in Trentino or Garda Lake. It is located not far from Trento, on a hill that dominates the Adige valley. The Castle is well preserved and very well...More
