We didn't know there was a castle here but ended up in Lari on our way somewhere else, what a great find! Great views of the countryside and Lari is a beautiful little Tuscan town. Definitely worth a stop!

The castle has had so many updated and improvements over the past 15 years. It is great to see what has been happening and to learn about the history of this beautiful place.

We were there on a Sunday and the castle was closed for visitors. But, we could walk up to almost the top and walk all around the castle on/along the wall. The scenery was great. Well worth the effort, even if you can't go inside.

After the obligatory pilgrimages to the obvious tourist traps in Tuscany it was amazing to find this little gem perched in the Tuscan Hills (about 30 mins from Pisa). It's a beautiful quaint town complete with its own castle. The views from the castle walls...More
