What a great place for history, seeing building that old, still in great condition is a testament to the craftsmanship of the builders

Went there twice during our stay in Lerici! The view of the Golfo dei Poeti was incredible. Good for an evening romantic walk. We managed to get in for free as they had some sort of modern art exhibition that day

Overlooking Lerici village and Bay is this ancient fort. Frequently host art exposition, probably to give some new fame to this old (and a bit forgotten by local) monument. Great views over the Lerici Gulf and Golfo dei Poeti toward Portovenere.

Enjoyed walking to this location that we could see from our room's balcony. Lots of stairs and a quaint route through narrow streets. You cannot go inside, but the location provides views. Nice fish restaurant nearby and you go through the fishing area.

While the village is small and unassuming, the views from the castello are certainly worthy of the walk. Great to pack a picnic lunch and sit amoungst the terraced houses at the base of the castle. The castle is simple in structure but enjoys a...More

The castle has a prominent position overlooking the beautiful village of Lerici. The vista from here is magnificent. The castle can be reached from Lerici by stairs that offer a good workout as you make your way to the top. There is a collection of...More
