Review of Fortezza da Basso

Fortezza da Basso
Reviewed 28 August 2018

Dodged the many local roadworks on a very hot day to get to this location only to be told it is not open to the public! Apparently it is used as a convention/trade fair centre by business and not an historical attraction - should have done my homework first.

We were unable to enter as a political convention was taking place but its a nice half hour walk to stroll around the old walls of the fortress through the park and take in the size of this old fort

The park next to the fortress was amazing! My dog enjoyed so much! Definitely your place if you are with your dog.

I attended a European conference at the Fortezza during a very hot July weekend. The aircon worked well, thank goodness, and there was plenty of space for the 1,000 attendees.
Catering was abysmal - no options for celiac sufferers or vegetarians - this is probably the organizers fault more than the caterers.

Rooms are icy cold and several are very dark. Very few toilet facilities. There are no taxi stands around. No nice cafe nearby or in the venueBy sharing your experiences, you're helping travellers make better choices and plan their dream trips. Thank you!
