Castelvecchio Museum, Verona

(4.4/5 based on 2,000+ 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. Add Castelvecchio Museum and other attractions to your Verona trip itinerary using our Verona vacation builder.

  • One of the stops to visit in Verona is definitely a very nice stroll over the bridge, Castelvecchio crossing the adige where to take some nice pictures and a visit to the Museum

  • To visit it is necessary a good walk, but definitely worth it! For those who love photography and is the perfect location and is one of the main attractions of Verona.

  • As we had time to wonder, we stumbled upon this after walking through the Arena. We decided to go through this and we were both thrilled we did. Such a beautiful sight to see. We were short on time so...  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
