Lots of very interesting artifacts found locally and preserved in the museum for us to see and wonder at. The most highly decorated rooms I think I've ever seen in what was essentially a private home to the Della Corgna family.

Amazing history hidden between these walls. Well maintained and presented. All information displayed in Italian and English. Combined ticket allows you to explore the castle too. Good value for money!

The palace is charming and the views spectacular. This is the go-to site at Castiglione del Lago , winter or summer.

A nice museum for the area but nothing like Siena, Florence, Rome etc. Since this was the Duke's palace it has very nice frescos on the walls and ceilings. Key Note: The museo is the port of entry to the castle/fort. You must pay the...More
