The Castello di Bracciano - a stone's throw from Rome - is one of the most impressive castles in Italy, Europe and the world. Completed in 1485 by the Orsini family, around an existing 12th century Vico fortress, it is one of the few renaissance castles in Italy that - thanks to the Odescalchi family - is open to the public. It also plays host to numerous weddings, galas and important cultural events throughout the year.

The castle has changed over the centuries (some original walls are still visible) with changes to particular time period and taste and has been restored (more recently?) without losing it's original character. Priceless furniture and paintings, All very well kept up. We've seen many castles...More

We enjoyed our self guided tour of the castle. It was refreshing to have a look around without the crowds. Amazing views from inside and interesting things to look at.

Very historical and good furnished. It seems a lovely place for a wedding or gala dinners, cocktails and concerts. Also animated tours for children and families. The building is Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Beautiful Castle with amazing views of the town and the lake. We walked around at our own leisure, no guide and found it very interesting and well maintained. Very easy to get to using local train service.
