Photo of the Castello di Duino taken from the inner side.
Since it was opened to the public again, in 2003, I believe, many people, being nearby, make a halt and visit this beautiful castle. It absolutely deserves to stop off.

Inner  Court of the Castle - Duino
Inner Court of the Castle

A splendid inner court (see the photo) with the well on one side, is the ideal setting for a chamber music festival.
Behind the well, a staircase leads up to the top of the watch tower. It is worth of any effort - panoramic view is magnificent.
