  • The most beautiful place in the world I’ve seen. Jaw dropping!!!

  • That was my first stop at Cinque Terres. I took the bus for fear of the unforgiving August sun and it was a rewarding ride. The castle itself was worth its 5 euro but the view was great up there. Seeing how the driver go through the narrow street and meet the onward traffic was quite an experience

  • Nice view but the 2,5€ per person for only a part of the castle is too much..

  • I'm a tourist. There wasn't much to see here, the castle ruins were a bit mediocre, but if you haven't seen any nice views of the see and surrounding land yet, there's a nice lookout point around

  • Great views. The castle itself is not very interesting.
