The walk up to this castle for amazing Brisighella is a job on its own specially in a sunny day, but when you arrive it is worth the effort, very picturesque medieval castle but be aware it only opens on weekends.

Not for the weak, infirm or unfit, but take your time and the views are excellent. The old well, battlements and surrounding areas are worth it too. There’s a charge of 3 Euro at the very top but the views of the little town and...More

Brisighella was such a lovely surprise for our stay. It's super photogenic with old people just walking around carrying cool canes and wearing fashionable hats. We spent a good amount of time just photographing the place and eating. The castle is a nice walk up...More

Which you may very well do if you climb the wrong way.....it is a splendid pile with magnificent views and you can drive almost right to the door. But watch opening times.

The castle can be reached by a scenic footpath that starts in the center of this small town or, if you don't feel like walking, you can go up by car. The entrance to the castle costs only 3 euro... Not much to visit a...More

Amazing views and a wonderful sense of history! It's a good climb up the hill to wear off the calories (or you could cheat and drive)!
