I guess since this was my first castle in Europe I expected expected more, but it was nice. You cannot go up into the tower, which was rebuilt and is not the original. There are some great shops there with hand made necklaces and other gifts. We did sit down there and enjoyed the views while having a drink. A... More

Castell'Arquato is a very picturesque medieval burg on the foothills of the Appennines, well worth a visit if you are staying in Milan, Piacenza or Parma. I'd say that it's good for family trips, kids love castles and there are a good many places for a meal, a snack or a drink, both in the lower, modern town, and inside... More

Castell'Arquato is a wonderful and well maintained old village located in the Po valley at the foot of the Appennini mountains near Piacenza. It is good for a day visit, not far from Milano. Very good and typical restaurants are in this location.

A magnificent historical village which we enjoyed visiting during a Medieval weekend event. There were Market stalls leading from the Castle down the cobblestone streets to the centre. Lots of handmade crafts for sale. There were musicians and jesters. The little shops and friendly locals helped make it another reason why we should return in the future.

Castell'Arquato is a beautifully preserved medieval town, complete with castle, church and civic buildings. It's an ideal place to wander and admire, and to do so safely as traffic is mostly banned from the town and confined to the outskirts. There are several good restaurants, too. One piece of advice - it's worth taking a few 50c coins to light... More

Very special and unique. Would love to have stayed some nights on the property of Castell Arquato as it is a relatively large area with small and cozy hotels. We were there 6 of july and there was hardly anyone there. Lovely!

If you have the opportunity to be around, tale a day to visit this place. You will be enchanted. Medieval small village, well kept, many interesting original places to visit and to remember. Beautiful and friendly people, good food at honest prices (excellent wine). Far from the madding tourist crowd, this village will surprise you.
