Create an itinerary including Castel del Monte
Protected as a World Heritage site, the image of Castel del Monte appears on the Italian version of the one-cent euro coin. When the castle was built in the 13th century, the fertile region would have made a comfortable lodge for emperors. However, the structure was most likely used as a citadel. The interior has been looted and vandalized, and some of the marble columns and other features ended up in the Bourbon family's royal houses. You can visit the wineries in the wine country around the castle, which produces limited-production barrels of Riserva.

  • The castle is beautiful on the outside. The views from the hill are breathtaking. The inside is nothing special - the walls are completely bare, there's literally nothing inside, every single room there looks the same, not everything is available for the public - it isn't worth paying the 7 euro for a ticket to enter.
  • A different kind of castle. Something you might want to check out. We went on a guided tour. But u need to take the bus to reach the castle. Beautiful view .
