Castelvecchio Museum, Verona

(4.4/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
Explore a small-but-varied collection of medieval paintings, sculptures, weapons, and ornamental objects alongside modern art at Castelvecchio Museum, housed in the 14th century castle of the same name. Between 1959 and 1973, modernist architect Carlo Scarpa restored and enhanced the castle, adding his own features and creating special fixtures to hold some of the artworks. The layout resembles a modern art gallery, rather than a historical museum, with ample space to appreciate each artifact. A fortified, red-brick bridge attached to the castle provides sweeping views of the river and surrounding countryside.

  • There's a lot of prerenaissence works there. The building itself is a masterpiece. You will find several paintings, armor pieces, like knifes, blades, helmets, swords... Go there and enjoy! Privileged...  more »

  • Worth visiting just for the view from the top. The museum itself was not to our liking (and the security guards in every room that look over your shoulder and make sure you don't come too close to anything -- and yell at you in Italian if you do! -- were extremely annoying...), but the visit was worth it just for the breathtaking view of Verona and the river from the top of the castle (see attached photos).
  • Very much enjoyed visiting and exploring this medieval castle. Everything is very well kept and it provides unique views of the city.
  • Place is really good for people who like art, but they have another things as well. You cam go inside with verona card
  • I visited this museum to see the building and it has an amazing architecture. If you are interested in christian art i think it is also a nice place to see. But mostly I recommend for the beatiful additions of Carlo Scarpa
  • Beautiful castle, great views. Staff surprisingly rude! Should find jobs outside the service industry
