  • I often visit the Visconti Castle for exhibitions, the last one dedicated to Renato Guttuso, well set out you're greeted by colorful paintings by the artist, the paintings come from private collections, the still lifes represent are a riot of colour in addition to the paintings you can see photos of the painter with celebrities. Tickets cost € 14, at the ticket office staff, included in the ticket the audioguide.

  • A beautiful Museum in the historic castle. A great many works of art. But we went here not only for the sake of a museum exhibition, it was necessary to explore and the castle itself! After all, something he is so similar to the Moscow Kremlin! Especially the teeth of the fortress walls.

  • We reached this castle to visit the exhibition on Guttuso, but once inside, we get "carried away" by the charm that this castle is able to convey to visitors; not only for its size, but for the current conditions, the result of skilful restoration work. We started visiting different sections of the municipal museums that are housed in the countless rooms of this building, whose construction began in 1360 and that when it was completed its size compared to a city then approximately 20,000 inhabitants, were definitely "oversized". Even with all the goodwill after over two hours of visit we had to "throw in the towel" for "exhaustion". The amount of the findings and of the exhibits was such that there "will force" to return to complete the visit. Simply spectacular!

  • 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!
