Unfortunately I was too early to visit the inside of the castle but the walk from the bridge to the castle through the narrow street is amazing an unique. A maze of uphill alleyways with hundreds of arches. Great views and great walk

There's no doubt a lot of history bound up in this castle. It overlooks Dolceacqua much in the same way that its feudal lord builders did. And there are lots of stories to tell, but you almost get none of that. The cheesey dramatization video...More

The small village of Dolceacqua has around 3000 inhabitants - in the summertime considerably more, as it is a popular place to visit. And the landmark here is the castle ruins High up on the hillside. Fantastic in dagtime, and even more at night with...More

Wow! There so much history in this place! It's a must to visit it if you're in the neighborhoods! Great interactive panel inside to discover all the history of Doria and Grimaldi Families!

Stunningly beautiful. the castle was very hot so we stuck to the narrow alleys which were breezy, cool and shady. A couple of restaurants next to the church are recommended for light lunch in the shade.

The castle costs 6 euros entry per adult. Not a great deal to see but the panoramas from the top are worthwhile. There is a bit of history explaining about the rivalries of the Doria and Grimaldi families. No tour guides and very few visitors...More

Beautiful place. Lovely amazing old town. A real living town stunningly restored. A new favourite place of mine. Bridge beautiful - I understand why Monet painted it

This castle is a medieval structure in fine condition. Many people still live in the small apartments within it's walls. The walkways are narrow and steep, but well worth the effort. The castle keep is only open at certain hours, and tickets are required.

Taking the Motorway it takes you abot 30 Minutes to reach Dolceaqua, It is very near the French Border, but far away from Savona.
