Good views of the countryside, but the castle is not all that magnificent, and the town of Enna was a big let down after reading the praises in the guide books. We went out of our way to tour here and were disappointed.

Enna is Sicily's prettiest hill town...and the Castello di Lomardia is the centerpiece, perched on the cragging hill, it overlooks the ville as protection from past invaders. Picturesque with ramparts, towers and weaponry...great photography ops.

Despite many attacks on this medieval castello the remains are still mainly intact. Frederick 11 had it built in the 13th Century and it is rumoured that he spent his summer months here. Only six of the original twenty towers are still standing but the view from the top is spectacular looking over the surrounding countryside. There is a huge... More

Once you have climbed the 3 kms from the motorway into the heart of old Enna this is the site to see.

It's free to enter the castle and we still got a guided tour in Italian but this was no problem for us. The views are spectacular but wear warm clothing since Enna is quite high up and can get quite cold outside. We went up on the roof of the tower and saw beautiful views, the Rocca Di Cerere and...

My wife and I live in Israel and we were on a week-long organized tour of Sicily. Although we are avid nature lovers and mountain hikers, before we came on this visit Sicily we really knew nothing about nature in Sicily except for Mount Etna. We were shocked to discover that Sicily is a virtual nature paradise. Our tour guide... More

The entrance is free, so you don't have excuses not to visit it. The inside is a vast empty space made of three separate parts-

We drove here on the way to Villa Romana del Casale at Piazza Aremina because it is one of the highest city's of Sicily and wanted to view it from the tower. There is parking up at the castle but since it's free it's packed. We parked half way down in a carpark which is off one of the side... More

The views of the surrounding countryside were AMAZING! It was a bit of a trek to get to the viewpoint, but absolutely worth it.
