Monferrato, and its surrounding Piedmont, are blessed with an enormous wealth of historic architecture. It is said that Monferrato has more castles per square kilometer than any other similar space in Italy.
Castelli Aperti or Open Castles is a series of events spanning the months of April through October. Not only castles (private and public) there are tours, activities, suggested itineraries for noble estates, ancient ruins, lofty towers , elegant gardens and also, the city palazzos which house various museum collections and exhibitions.
The range of events is wide and changes weekly, from a tour guided by a castle’s owner, or a picnic on the grounds, to wine tastings, and the occasional battle reenactment. The location, time, cost and special activity details of each event are individual.
Open to public, some events and visit are for free, some are upon payment
