If you like castles then there is plenty here for you and the views are pretty god, especially the river. The main parts of the museum has displays of statues and loads of paintings that have been recovered from closed or destroyed churches all over Italy, although I admit there are only so many religious paintings I can tolerate. Don't... More

The views out of the castle are beautiful and there are lots of fun side nooks and crannies in the castle. A fun visit on a hot or cold day to get you out of the weather

The building and the gallery are interesting and worth the visit. Very good views of the river and the ancient bridge. Beware, however, that this very large building has one unisex squat toilet. This is simply not good enough. Most women would baulk at using a squat toilet in which men have been urinating. It stank. I don't know what... More

After viewing the bridge, stop by at this castle. It is a museum with art pieces, sculptures and so on. There is a chance to be on the battlements too, it was closed for "ice" when we are there, worth 1-2 hours of your time.

Interesting collections and you get to see the architecture and some of the original wall designs as well. Great view from the top of the wall. If you visit the museum in winter like I did I would recommend keeping your jackets with you because the museum sections aren't all in one part of the castle and you get to... More

The Scaligeri family built and occupied the castle from 1343-1356 as a residence and fortress. It houses the city's art gallery and has great views of the city, river, and Ponte Scaligero. We leisurely strolled through the castle on a sunny, warm day. The views are picturesque and we didn't linger too long in the art galleries. It was fun... More

As we had time to wonder, we stumbled upon this after walking through the Arena. We decided to go through this and we were both thrilled we did. Such a beautiful sight to see. We were short on time so we didn't do the full tour. But it was beautiful maintained and kind of gives you and idea of what... More

We were not aware of the castle museum and happened to pass it walking around Verona. It turned out to be very interesting and we ended up spending about an hour looking at the various exhibits. The castle provided a look at life during the middle ages......lovely paintings, artifacts, and grounds. There is no cafe for a snack or meal.... More

Beautiful place to take pictures and on a sunny day lovely to walk across the castle bridge and up the river to Romano Theatro (20-30min walk) which is also a must see! Recommend to do this on a walking sightseeing trip as you can do all on same day in a loop- Arena, Roman Arches, Romano Theatro, Basilica etc.

The first time we came to Castelvecchio, we decided to give its museum a pass. After all, we could wander around the red-brick castle's grounds for free and easily access the attached Scaligero Bridge, one of Verona's gems. As avid museum goers, however, we began to wonder how the former 14th-century home and defensive fortification worked as a museum focusing... More
