(Tours start every 50 minutes until late night)

From the legends, to the strange happenings, to the investigations of the paranormal researchers, dive for one night in the mysteries of the Castle of Zavattarello, linked to a famous murder.
The legend tells that Pietro Dal Verme, poisoned by his second wife Chiara Sforza on 17th October 1485, is the presence that haunts the rooms of the ancient fortress.
Several inexplicable facts happened inside the castle during its long history: from these facts, the paranormal researchers made scientific investigations to discover more. And, because of the results, the surveys are going on.
During the night, the participants will be guided to the special Mystery Tour, to discover the places of the legend and the strange happenings. Not a classical guided tour to tell the history and appreciate the architecture of the ancient fortress, but a real journey to discover its mysterious and obscure side.
A path that will lead you along each room of the castle in a special show: be cautious because behind every corner a surprise might be waiting...

The Mystery Tour

Enhanced experience

More engaging voyage inside the whole castle.

A cold night of October many centuries ago.
An historical poisoning,
that also became legend.
A series of inexplicable happenings.
A journey to discover them.

The Mystery Tour is an emotional experience, a theatre play, a path in time and space, on the border between suggestion and reality.
Is going to be hard to distinguish between them: closed inside and ancient fortress, separated from the world outside, in a place where past and present merge, accompanied by people who came out of the Medieval Ages to mix with other from our present.
Beware: as Hemingway said, "It is awfully easy to be hard-boiled about everything in the daytime, but at night it is another thing".
In such an emotional place, accompanied by the protagonists of the most mysterious tales, it can be hard to tell suggestion out of reality.
So we suggest you to follow the traced path and join this adventure with an open mind and ready for surprises.

The Mystery Tour is an emotional experience, a theatre play, a path in time and space, on the border between suggestion and reality.
