  • I tried 2 times in vain to visit this museum. The first time I arrive and there is the Lady at the ticket booth. Another employee who cannot make tickets tells me that the person in question is went for a private Commission to the post office and no one knows when he comes back (it was 13 and the Museum closed at 14). Obviously I'm annoyed. Return the next day and the Lady is behind his desk talking on the phone. Look there before her. She won't even look at me. After 2 minutes unnerved esco and I'm leaving. That's my experience at this place. If I go back to Verona I will not attempt never really visit this place.

  • The Lapidario Maffeiano is one of the oldest museums in Europe, until almost the end of the 19th century was considered the "Museum" of Verona and previously visited by all who came to Italy to make the Grand Tour, Goethe among the first. It houses a beautiful lapidary collection and much is still that of Scipione Maffei who in the mid-eighteenth century wanted to create this space. Collection that perhaps may not appeal to everyone but personally I found it very fascinating, and as Maffei "registrations are, more than any other artifact, true antiquity speakers". The Museum is open only in the morning from 8.30 at 14 and is closed on Mondays. The ticket costs € 4.50 but recommend the combined ticket with a visit from Castelvecchio to € 7.

  • For the curious of the gravestones, this is your place no doubt. The amount of drawings, reliefs, carved tombstones, complexity is surprising in its elaboration and laborious work. To view it carefully you can go 2 hours without realizing. It is quite worth visiting it.

  • One of the best world collections of Greek and Roman Lapidary. You will walk through 3000 years of history. A beautiful path that needs to be more enhanced as not everyone knows about this place. 4 stars just because there are those horrible modern sculptures that pretend to have something to match with those beautiful stones, full of history and stories to tell. The museum should also try to show the gorgeous collection of thousand of stones that still be stored in the underground for a lack of space and money. an interactive guide would be nice.
  • Bunch of old rocks in a nice building. Wouldn't reccomend unless you have the "Verona Card" which includes entry within the price.
  • Nice little Mini Museum on Roman and Etruscan finds.

  • Extraordinary outdoor museum for Greek and Roman relics (appropriately described in captions) and the scenic backdrop of the Pronaos of the teatro filarmonico, which unfortunately does not act more from entrance to the theater, as it was of the illuminated project of Scipione Maffei
