Overview
More
The Castello di Bracciano - a stone's throw from Rome - is one of the most impressive castles in Italy, Europe and the world. Completed in 1485 by the Orsini family, around an existing 12th century Vico fortress, it is one of the few renaissance castles in Italy that - thanks to the Odescalchi family - is open to the public. It also plays host to numerous weddings, galas and important cultural events throughout the year.

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

This castle was the main home to the famous Dukes of Orsini whose coat of arms and symbol of a bear is visible in nearly every room. It’s survived very well with some sympathetic restoration. It’s reasonably priced and there are lots of events for...More
