We had a great guided tour. The Castle is amazing, big, full of details. Once you enter, you can really feel how was life inside the castle many years ago. A great attraction in Sermoneta!

If you can find the website I would check. It is a very informal place. The tour we did was in Italian with the guide then going on to explain in English. The Italian tourists on the trip also helped us greatly by... More
