The stores were partially closed, impossible to reach in wheelchair. The castle itself is not wheelchair friendly, so I had to give up my plan of going there. Sad that they care so little about people in wheelchair.

Walking through the area with the little shops is delightful, but the tour of the Castle is exceptional. The guide explains what each of the rooms was used for, and what the artifacts and utensils were used for. The very good tour is in Italian,...More

This place is pretty unique, should be visited. The only shame was that almost all shops in there were closed, including the facilities (maybe thats why the entry fee was zero). With a bit of an exaggeration one can say the only open thing in...More

we visited this reconstructed medieval village out of curiosity, and were delighted to find it very authentic. Many items were of interest to adults, but the younger ones would find lots to see and do, it is a must for a family visit,

This replica of a medieval castle set in this wonderful park beside the river Po, is a delight and fun to explore. Definitely child friendly and something to spark the imagination.

This attraction is well worth seeing on it's own merit but also because it's different to anything else I saw in Turin. You actually feel you are being taken back in time especially when wandering around the inside. It has lovely turrets, a small courtyard,...More

This place reminds me of Castel Coch outside Cardiff but it wasn't fully open. It's charming and I'd like to visit again in warmer weather. There's not a lot of English information. It has a lot of potential and I wonder if they have activity...More

We went to the Borgo on a Sunday and a Monday. Sunday we got to see all the vendors and shops in the Rocca and got to tour the Borgo. Monday everything was closed inside the Rocca and no tour, but we were able to really see... More
