  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Marvellous castle. A lot of things to see inside. A tasteful bar in the garden
  • Well worth the entrance fee. A must in Trento
