Great view up here, but the tiny castle was closed off, perhaps for repairs. You can't go up to the top of it. But the area around the castle is an amazing view for the sunset.

I visited Vernazza lasit month and the views from here are stunning. The entrance to the stairs to walk up are a little bit hidden (across from the square) and you're never sure you're going in the right direction (just follow the people), but when you arrive at the top you'll be rewarded with the 360 degree views. There's a small entrance fee and you don't need to spent long up there but you have sweeping views of the water, the town and the country side. A must do which you can do in under 30 mins (1 hour if you're taking your time).

One of the greatest view to 5terre. Do not leave it out! Go up, after some steps you will have a nice panorama.

You do get a nice view of the port and a section of the coast, BUT it is quite a climb. I don't think it was worth the 1,50 Euro entrance fee. When I was there the tower and a section of the deck was closed (for repairs, I assume). If you don't mind the climb and a small fee, go for it. I wouldn't do it again.

This shouldn’t even be listed as an actual attraction, because it’s nothing more than a lookout over Vernazza. And it’s not even a good one, because the view is blocked by houses. The ‘castello’ consist of nothing more than 1 tower that you cannot even come close to. Vernazza has way better view points than this one for free, so better skip it!
