  • So much history and so many emotions. Open hours are perfect, accessible by a short walk from the parking fee (hard to find alternatives in the area). The rest doesn't deserve other words, they are almost all lost in the labyrinth of the complex remained open-mouthed at every step, better to have a map for orientation or a guide, otherwise the large and friendly staff can help you. Well maintained, clean, heated. The view out of Cesare Battisti, 2 hours are not enough.

  • I will have seen the Castle a dozen times and I always find something new that attracts me and that makes me live the same firsthand.

  • It was the first visit to the city. The Park is well cared for. Is a cross between a castle and a mansion with many corners to discover between frescoes and cooridoi.

  • An eclectic collection of art and artifacts ranging from ancient Egyptian to Roman to Medieval and so on. The castle itself was originally constructed in the 13th century and has had parts of it rebuilt many times taking on a sewing patchwork of materials and styles.
  • Marvellous castle. A lot of things to see inside. A tasteful bar in the garden
  • Beautiful castle. For 8euros per entry- we got 2euros off with the Molveno tourist card - it was very worth it. Lots of beautiful artwork to appreciate.
  • A big beautiful castle with lots of original artwork inside. The tower Aquila is definitely worth the extra two euros. The tower is only one room, but the artwork and audio tour should not be missed. It takes a few hours to explore and is an excellent use of an afternoon.
  • It's an big, ancient castle, full of history. The torre aquila is definitely worth the extra 2 euros. The back courtyard where Cesare Batista and others were executed is chilling.
