The field of Castiglione is much as it was when the battle was fought in 1796 with the villages little-changed in more than 200 years.

Finding good vantage points is not easy, due to lush growth brought on by better farming techniques, although a hill south-west of Castiglione offers a pretty good place to overlook the battlefield.

There is a castle in the village, but it is private property and is not available for people to visit.
