Compiano historic centre is a pedestrian area, residents excluded. So no cars are allowed to access to the Castle; hotel-relais guests and visitors to its museums will be allowed to use the free parking (also for the coaches), situated at 400 m about along SP66, in Piazzale Ilaria Alpi, where there is also a public toilet.
The museum collections, the hotel and the restaurant are partially accessible to disabled people, thanks to a cobbled slop and a lift. A bedroom with a suitable bathroom is available for them at the hotel.
Compiano Castle is dog-friendly! Bring with you your pets as long as they are equipped with their leashes!
