Museo di Castelvecchio, Verona

4.5
Explore a small-but-varied collection of medieval paintings, sculptures, weapons, and ornamental objects alongside modern art at Museo di Castelvecchio, 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.

  • Beautiful complex, is a fortress that has kept its structure intact. You can visit it on the outside and then get inside for the Museum. The cost of the ticket is €10, of course then there are reductions.

  • Such a wonderful castle and amazing work of arts inside. It's worth a visit. The bridge is also stunning
  • It might have helped to have enter the Castle at sunset - the views from the old walls is insanely gorgeous! The museum is so nicely kept and the artifacts, stone sculptures and urns, paintings and frescoes beautifully displayed. A must see in Verona! Really suggest going at sunset (museum closes at 7.30 pm)
  • Absolute gem to walk around and great views around Verona. Catholic religious art and some weaponary. English translations available. Recommend that you pay a visit if in Verona.
  • Really good place. The massive structure of this Castle is what motivates you to go in. Good to take a walk through the bridge and take some pics. Also there are tours that can be taken.
  • I am usually not into museums but this place is awesome. It doesn't have that typical museum look and feel. Instead, you can actually visualize what it must have been like running around in there back many years ago. Highly recommend visiting.
