The castle of the Guidi is very well preserved and was built presumably by the father of Arnolfo di Cambio and it is the prototype with which was built later the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence. Very interesting is the great cantilevered staircase, the first of its kind and the Guidi Chapel where there are some frescoes attributed to Taddeo Gaddi.... More

It was fun finding this castle and parking in the small old town on the hill. There is a small fee to enter. The inside of this castle has some furnishings and is very reminiscent of the times, with a good audio tour that is included with price on entry. We enjoyed going from room to room listening to the... More

The castle was in good shape and the audio guide was useful. The story behind Lady Matilda kept our 2 pre-teens spooked. The climb up the tower was worth the view. Fun was had by the whole family.

A place to visit. It is a medieval castle not to far from Florence in the Casentino countryside. It is on the top of a hill in a strategic position .. So wonderful panorama and very nice village around. It is a place full of history XII-XIII century

Life in the 1300s was political and vindictive! Come and see this castle, learn about the feuding parts of Italy and who won! The castle itself is also very nice and you'll enjoy the views.

Came here with our 15yr old daughter and spent 2 hours wandering around the various rooms and listening to the audio guide. Excellent value at €5 each & a lovely outdoor café located just over the road.

Super castle, stunning location. Well preserved. Very Good visitor experience, with access to the castle inside and out, including prison tower, reception halls, and even a gallery (with a fab collection of paintings by Viktoriya Bubnova, from July to Sept 2016)

A cosy and nice area, the keep is inhabited as it was always. A nice festival took place when we were there.
