Guided tour is mandatory if you want to see the interior of the castle, which amongst others contains a huge collection of medieval weapons and armour. Unfortunately taking photos is not allowed. The guide was charming and did an excellent job despite some English language problems. Interesting to see how the living quarters from long ago. The tour was a... More

We were the only three English-speakers in a large group of visitors. Rather than try to do a tour bi-lingually which would have been hard for both the Italian guests and us, Giovannia and her colleague separated us. Giovannia apologized for her English skills but actually, they were quite good. These guides are a treasure trove of interesting historical facts... More

The tour is given in the languages of the group. That will give you time to look around the room e.g. of the very impressive collection of amour and weapons of the time period.

Take a few hours out of your Venice trip and come here . The Castle , its fortifications ,the small churches the Duoma,the santuario are worth the trip.

We travelled from Padua by train ,-a short inexpensive journey. There is a steep walk up the hill to the castle which is furnished sympathetically with objects which make the castle feel comfortable. There are also a wide range of weaponry displayed. We were provided with an English speaking guide with another couple who were Bavarian. The guide provided us... More

Our family of 4 stopped here during our 5 day stay in Monselice in June. The docent spoke strong English and had deep knowledge of the castle and its history. The site is well preserved. This was a delightful stop, especially on a hot day.

The castle is visitable only by guided tour, which you can just turn up for. They start on the hour, but with a sizeable break for lunch. The guide speaks good English. Highlight of the tour is the large medieval kitchen.

After this castle was left in pity conditions by army during the war, Mr. Cini bought it and not only refurbished it, but also created a unique collection of medieval weapons/armours and furnitures, bought from all over Italy and Europe. The armory is amazing. And all of these parts are originals. A nice way to pass 1 hour, with a... More

The inside of the castle has fantastic period furniture - though most of it not original to the locale. A fascinating dining room, lots of old weapons, and interesting chimneys. Typical castle stuff. Great location and walking distance to an older fortress further up the hill. A pleasant afternoon.

We arrived at 10.15 and asked for a tour. We immediately got a private one, because this early we were the first visitors of the day. Our guide spoke very good English, and was able to answer all our questions. The tour takes you through the armour room, the Venetian style domestic part of the castle, the Venetian garden and...
