Saw the castle from afar and we decided to check it out. It was raining when we were there but castel beseno surprised us with its beauty even if it was raining and gloomy. Some parts of the castel and its ramparts are still intact. And the views below are amazing. I love the location of this castle and the views below it is superb.

Castle Beseno was our favorite of the three castles we saw in the Trento region. We spent about 2 hours exploring Beseno. It is more like a fortress type castle rather than a palace for royalty. Roofs and parts of walls are missing. It is restored and renovated just enough that guests can visit almost every square inch of the property, including on the “catwalks” around the outside perimeter of the walls so you can soak in the gorgeous setting. One side gives you views of lush green mountains while the other gives you views of the big, flat valley and sweeping mountains. There is a small set of rooms that are more museum like, focusing on knights and protecting the castle, including armor you can try on. A few gardens have safe weapons for you to try as well, such as the cross bow with rubber arrows. Another bonus is the location. This is the easiest castle to get to from Verona, although we missed the entrance to the main parking lot so we had a short hike/walk through trees from the 3-4 car free parking lot where we ended up. Make sure you admire the beauty of the castle nestled in the hills while you’re driving in the valley too! Overall, this castle was a top highlight of our 12 day trip, and we visited all major cities in Italy north of Rome.

We visited on a sunny day which was a bit hot walking those gh the views are stunning. It is a beautiful castle and we spent around 2 to 3 hours and even the kids 6 and 9 had a great time dressing up as knights and posing with real spears and swords.

Worth the visit!!!

There is a small coffe shop in the castle and snacks at the parking.

The wide yard outside and children can run around freely.
In the castle, the exhibisions about the medeaval period were interested.
We could take pictures as if we wore the medeaval armors.
There is the nice resturant near the castle, it has local menu, tasted very good.

The huge fortress, shaped as a battle ship, on the top of the hill will attract your attention when you are driving on the motorway in both directions.Worth a little detour.
Comfortable free parking 5 minutes walk, uphill, to the entrance.
Very reasonable ticket, only 5 euros, for a nice experience.
The Castle itself is worth exploring, you have different paths to enjoy with stunning views on the Adige valley.
The interiors, although not furnished, host a museum, very nicely set up, with also sounds and light effects, or videos, good for children with small bow arches to play with in the courtyard next to the entrance.
Coffee shop was closed and the outside bar next to the parking closes from about 5.30pm to 7.30 pm.
