No shortage of castles around Lake Garda - nothing much to see inside but does give a good view over the town.

It’s a steep climb and the views are great. Worth going to see if your nearby and having a well deserved drink as you walk back down into the town.

Views are good but so is the view from almost everywhere around. The interior of the castle was a bit of a disappointment. Yes a historical building but really not worth going out of your way to see.

There is a great view from the castle but to be honest you can get pretty much the same view from outside. Was a bit underwhelmed by the interior of the castle- was in and out in 5 minutes

Combine a visit here with the Roman villa & archaeological museum, all within a few minutes walk of each other. Of limited interest on its own. Bare rooms. The tower provides decent views of Desenzano, but be warned! Insufferable on a hot day as the...More

There's not a lot to see or say really except a fabulous view. I suppose it is worth the climb for this alone and there are many bars and restaurants on the way down into town. This is worth half hour or less – no...More

As others have said, the castle itself is not extensive, the views are superb across the town of Desenzano and the lake beyond. When we were there, a wine festival (local wines only) was on - brilliant. This suggests there are events on throughout the...More

Something different to try around Desenzano, lovely views from the top, very inexpensive and worth looking at the museum. Only down side was it was very steep hill walking up.

It is well worth the climb to visit this castle as the view you get over Disenzano and the South part of the lake makes it worthwhile.
