  • Castle beautiful and well maintained. Very nice museums and deserving for uniqueness and variety. Fine art galleries and very nice everything. Staff very kind and personable. The only flaw ... hours. In summer closes at 13.30:(

  • The chateau is lovely ... I highly recommend a visit to the museums. Exciting section dedicated to the risorgimento. Warm and friendly staff. I will be back with my grandkids.

  • Gallery closed, open only the ground floor sections: half Museum, full price! Visit the most interesting environments that for the above; fully usable only for experts in archaeology and medieval history. Obvious signs of neglect.

  • nothing really special in it, worthy only during special expositions
  • Because this place is so huge and awesome..thats not a castle that you see in any place....
  • Beautiful Visconti Castle, located in the central position in Pavia! This mediaval castle (1360) is a must see when visiting Pavia! I had a chance to visit it during the little beer festival so the atmosphere was really great! We enjoyed nice music and great local food and beers, while enjoying magnificent interior courtyard of the castle! Recommended!
  • Very interesting place with a lot of thematic museums inside: Romans, Egypts... Very interesting expositions along the year, Picasso, Monet ...
  • Big and wonderful italian castle, a must if you are visiting Pavia!
