Lovely views from the top
Aug 2020
It’s not a long walk to the top (15 mins or so) and they are not conducting tours because of Covid. The views are amazing and you can see Volterra and Castellina Pisano.

very good guided tour (in English)

My husband and I visited during a heatwave in June, and were the only visitors that afternoon. The guide did a tour specially for the two of us, in English. We found his information really interesting - thank you for explaining everything!

Wasted trip

The road to Rocca Sillana is not for the faint hearted. There is then a very steep hillside track up the side of the hill (about 15 minutes) so not for small kids, the elderly or anyone with mobility issues. And then, when you reach the top, it's only open Saturday thru Monday in the late afternoon and Tuesday evening, with a guided tour only. That said, the view is amazing and how they built it so long ago and so high up is outstanding!

Getting to the Rocca Sillana is NOT easy. A rough climb that seems to take forever. The place in itself more than repays you for the effort. Restoration wasn't done as properly as it should but the scenery is magical. You can feel the centuries passing before you overlooking the rough terrain and the winding road to get there. On a windy day, you can almost feel how difficult it must have been to be stationed there. Definitely an overlooked gem in the deep Tuscany, one you won't regret going out of the most trodden path for.

Inform yourself about the opening times...
Aug 2014 • Family
Before you go there, be sure the castle is open. When we were there in August 2014 it was open on saturday, sunday and monday but only from (about) 4pm. and only accesible with a guide. We were there already at 11 trying to avoid the heat so the gate was closed. But you can still see the impressive castle walls from nearby. view is nice as well. From the parking lot it is a rather steep walk of between 15-30 minutes up to the castle.

It was closed

The fact that it was closed at 15.20 and we were not allowed to enter until 16.00, despite the fact that we had walked up and the attendant was already there. We walked back down the hill and got an ice cream instead.
