4.4/5 based on 1,900+ 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.

  • The Castelvecchio is situated directly on the banks of the river Adige. The Fort is partly without visit admission, the Ponte Scaligero is freely accessible. Necessarily even run across the bridge and enjoy the views of the Adige river and the city. In the beautifully restored medieval building, a remarkable art gallery is located with well-known masters. The Museum was not crowded and we couldn't work very well on the connection of art and buildings. The ticket prices are not excessive and so even to run via the old ramparts and win fantastic impressions of the city.

  • 1) in Civic Museum (significant and interesting anke x nn fans) the works stolen were found. At 2/10 still nn exposed but hopefully soon 2) on the first Sunday of each month all inputs are 1 €! Take advantage if possible 3) Castelvecchio you see gorgeous after crossing the charming bridge from the high battlements. Enter the exquisite piazza d weapons, the statue of Cangrande on horseback appears almost suspended in the void rounds in theaters and then on to the tower with the statue of Mastino. Very impressive. But Verona is beautiful! p.s. Nn forget to visit the Church of s. Anastasia. A gem!

  • Must see as Castel San Pietro and the walls of Verona beyond the usual House of Juliet and the Arena. The Castle and admirably refurbished by. Children will love the tunnels the prisons and whatnot you summon their fancy.

  • Great marriage of old Medieval architecture with modern architectural restoration was done by a brilliant Italian architect. It was a fun museum for us and our children to run around in and soak in the great views of the town and river.
  • Worth a visit but less spectacular than I was expecting. Nice views of the river and bridge.
  • A large part of the area is roped off, but regardless, there are nice views of the water and bridge from here, and the architecture of the walls is definitely interesting.
  • Gives a really good history of venice, has really interesting paintings, you can walk along the top of the walls at one part and can take some pretty great pictures up there, overall really good.
  • Nice castle, a little is off limits which is a shame but well preserved
