Quite small castle with superb views to the lake and town. They have entrance fee which includes small very interesting museum about the history, nature and geology of the lake Bolsena. The ole town itself is company but very beautiful.

A cool place to stop and enjoy the scenery. The castle is located above the old part of the town, on a great cliff. All in all simple fun.
