Castello Brown, Portofino Reviews - Write a Review
If you're in Portofino for more than a day you really should spend the 5 euros and climb up to the castle. The views of the town and Rapallo from the patio were awesome plus the fee helps maintain the place. Nothing too fancy here but I don't get to walk around in 500 year old buildings very often. If you've come this far, go out to the lighthouse at the very end for more beautiful views but beware, the Lighthouse Pub is closed on Wednesdays. That happened to be the day we went.
A great walk and beautiful gardens, with amazing views. Quiet building. $5 euros.
Best view of the village of Portofino is from Castello Brown. You also get great views of the Ligurian sea and coastline. Don't expect to see prince's and princesses in the castle it's more about enjoying the beautiful flowers, ancient architecture and an unbeatable view!
Quite a few steps up to get to the Castle, cost for entry is 5 Euros per person as of June 2017. The view from the rooftop garden is amazing, looking down at all the ships in Portofino. There's also a water refill fountain just outside the castle front door off to the side little courtyard. Nice washroom too.
Don't waste your time (or your 10Euro) visiting this place. Although the view is nice from inside, the outside view of the port is just as good. It's worth doing the hike for the view but I regretted visiting the museum itself.
