Came here after dinner to see around the castle. I've found that the area is quite interesting, this castle are located at the top of the hill, so you can see the city view better and clearer

The castle is situated in the middle of the city with a really nice view and lots of possibilities to take nice pictures. When we were there the castle was closed but you can walk around almost everywhere. Nice to see but don’t spend to...More

The gardens and area around the castle is a nice walk, you also get nice views across the city as it is located up on a hill, around a 15 minutes walk from San Faustino metro station or Piazza della Loggia the city's central square!

To wander around the gardens and alleys is thrilling. 🚶🏽‍♂️📸 Many signs explain the parts and buildings which make up the castle. The outlook from the castle is just stunning, I was lucky to visit on a sunny day. There is a photo opportunity almost...More

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
