Well worth the climb. View to the coast is great. There isn't much which haven't been said already. Entrance fee was modest 1,50 euros.

Entrance to the climb just opposite Baia Saraceno Pizzeria. 150+ steps up to the top but the views well worth it. So is the history and information up the top.

My wife, two children and I visited Castello Doria in Vernazza in July 2018. You have to find the beginning of the steps which is past the harbor and near the main square and main street. Then you have to walk up steps for about 10-15 minutes. It is worth the climb. There are great views of the Mediterranean, the harbor area and Vernazza, Monterosso al Mare to the north, the coastline to the south and the hills. Many photo ops. You need to pay 2 euros entrance fee.

Go here if you need to climb a few more steps in Vernazza! :)
There are steps everywhere! Worth the walk up for the views and doesn't take long

You'll feel like a little kid again climbing the stairs inside the castle and emerging at the top with a 360 degree view of Vernazza... Don't forget to bring ~$2 euros with you per person as this is the very small fee at the top of the stairs... If you're in your swimming trunks with no cash... oops... Bring your camera but of course you already know that!
