The castle has been extensively refurbished and is presented in almost pristine condition. A lot of hard work and money has been put into this imposing building, situated overlooking Lake Bracciano and it shows. There is a guided tour leaflet which takes you round and...More

Completely disappointed. We had to pay for a driver to get here. Self directed tour - audio not available. No idea what I was looking at. Would have been fun if we would have been able to hear history or tales of the property and...More

We spent an hour or so wandering about the grounds. While a guided tour would help or even an audio tour, it was fun to explore. Children might like poking around the site. Plan an hour or two to completely see the available areas. As...More

I’ll be honest it was a little bit creepy walking around this castle as there was hardly anyone else there when we went. But it had so many artefacts from history, really well preserved. I’d say go there if you’re passing by, but nothing to...More

This place was amazing. Much bigger that we thought and not crowded at all so pretty much walked around alone. Guided trip was possible but we also got alot information from the signs in each room. Very nice view.

Interesting place quite beautiful scenery. The lake and the trees gives it the special touch. The interior is a little bit too renovated for my teast.

If you like castles then this won’t disappoint. The courtyards are magnificent and the rooms exceptional architecturally- although the furniture is a mishmash. Spectacular views and friendly staff. Good guide sheet, I now know what a great thing an enfilade is. Allow two hours including...More

We found this by accident and decided to take a walk around. This is a beautiful building which has been nicely restored in parts. The written guide is a lot about the decor but not so much about the history of the use of the...More

This is the main attraction in Bracciano I would think, the castle is an imposing structure and well kept. Since around the year 1200 an old fortress has existed on this site, over time it was enlarged on multiple occasions. Since 1952 the castle has...More

I do not think they offer guided tours in English, on our recent visit to the castle in May we were told there were only tours in Italian. We self-guided our way through the castle using a comprehensive handout which was... More
