Head to San Giusto Castle, a former Roman fort, to visit the city museum's impressive collection of weapons and furnishings. Set atop a large hill, the 15th-century castle also boasts a collection of mosaic tiles, statuary, and burial stones, which are hidden in a series of deep underground cellars accessed from one corner of the site. Frederick of Habsburg initiated construction of the castle, which was finished by Venetians. Pay attention to the metal statues that welcome you at the entrance, which tell the entertaining story of Mike and Jake.

  • Great little castle with armory and a small display of roman mosaics and stone sculpture. The view of the city is fantastic. Walk up or take the elevator from st giusto parking.
  • A very steep walk is rewarded with such an amazing historical site. An ancient church maintained to a high standard
