We hiked up the hill from town, but there is parking at the top. We strolled the castle grounds only (free). Nice views of the city. Small cafe on top near entrance. Worth a visit.

Difficult to review as not the best of castles you can visit. The signage around was unhelpful and nothing to really engage. The cafe at the top looked uninviting as well. Saying this though if you are in Brescia then you should definitely visit for...More

I didn't visit the museum but I enjoyed walking around the grounds (which is totally free). There are some nice little corners to explore and some good photo opportunities. The uphill walk wasn't difficult but i would avoid it on a hot summer day. A...More

As the title suggests, we walked from the town and up the narrow streets to the castle. Interesting yet exhausting. The climb was worthwhile as the castle itself was fascinating and the view from the ramparts spectacular. On the day of our arrival the town...More

There are a lot of steps to get to the top but well worth it as the views are stunning , we stopped just before the top where there was a beautiful bar (near a car Park)

What an incredible castle. The grounds are extensive and beautifully maintained. The views over Brescia are fabulous. We visited for an afternoon with children aged 3 and 7, and the whole family loved it. We really couldn’t believe that the entry was free. So much...More
