Aka Palazzo Ducale. Next to (and sharing a ticket with) the Rocca del Leone fortress that you do have listed, but they need to be referenced separately; they are two very different attractions.

From the narrow walkways, towers and fab views, what's not to like. Walkable distance for kids (4-5 yo). There is even a wall where kids get to scribble with chalks :)

This is the route to the castle ramparts though a long, narrow, covered passage which is very unusual. The Palace is not that impressive apart from its ceilings and when we visited there was an abstract art exhibition which wouldn’t be to everybody’s liking.

The frescoes tell the story of the life and exploits of Ascanio della Corgna who was an admired soldier in the 1500's , his uncle was Pope Julius 111. This leads to the enclosed walkway up to the Fortress . It was their private home

Lots of very interesting artifacts found locally and preserved in the museum for us to see and wonder at. The most highly decorated rooms I think I've ever seen in what was essentially a private home to the Della Corgna family.

Amazing history hidden between these walls. Well maintained and presented. All information displayed in Italian and English. Combined ticket allows you to explore the castle too. Good value for money!

From the fortress you get into the palace via a walled passage, where you can visit the rooms staring at amazing restored "affreschi", realised and mastered by Pomarancio (great local artist whose works are well spread in the area: Città della Pieve, Orvieto) and his...More

It's all bundled in 1 fee: 5 eur for adults. Should be worth your while whether your into history or not. Museum part is limited, there are more interesting historical museums in the area. But the fresco's in the palazzo are not only beautiful but...More

We visited Castiglione del Lago in early May and it is a nice walled town to walk around and visit the shops. We parked ( free parking) just outside the walls of the town and walked a short distance through the entry way of the...More
