Interesting old castle but rather small. Several shops, beautiful gardens and antiques around the castle. The castle lays between two beaches and the view is breathtaking. Worth the visit.

After visiting Santa Severa just to see all the cats, stroll along the beach and enjoy the castle from the outside, we finally got the chance to visit inside. It is a pity the opening hours are quite limited, but this castle really is a gem and they have made a great effort to make the tour both interesting from... More

Small but interesting old castle, a museum inside of it, several shops with hand-made souvenirs, beautiful gardens and antiques around the castle.. The place is interesting because it lays between two beaches and the view is incredible from both sides! Great place to stop and visit if you go to see the italian coast or passing by it..

Visits to the Castle are by guided tours only. I had an excellent guide, the videos that were running in several rooms are very good at explaining the history of the site from pre roman times.

We went up there in a late summer afternoon. It is a long windy drive from the cost and finding the entrance was a bit challenging, but basically you should go to the main square where the bars are. Next time I would check the opening times and make sure I allow plenty of time to reach the place. The... More

We found the Museo Del... More

Only the front part with the musea is open. The castle is closed, they don"t know if it will open again. It"s cluttered and it seems like they have given up all together. The castle is quite impressive on the outside, but it is not worth the drive. Only when you're passing by maybe.

We decided to go to Sabnta Severa which by the way has a large free beach, and after spending a nice afternoon there we decided to visit the Castle. The entrance is 3 E with a guide, and it included a show about the sea. Its a Borgo, so the castle and the place where people lived. The first attraction... More

We went to the beach next to the Castle as we were looking for a sea location not far from Rome. It is one hour from Rome, which is not bad to drive. The water is clean and even though the beach is not very big, we went to one of the "stabelimento" and there we rented very cheaply two... More
