Beautiful old castle right in the old part of the city. Nicely landscaped grounds and interesting antiquities inside the castle.

I spent a 2 hours visiting the Castello di Buonconsiglio, and it was a really nice few hours! Since I arrived only a few hours before closing time, unfortunately I didn't have enough time to do the whole tour, but the part I DID see was really amazing! If you are ever in Trento, I strongly reccomend a visit to... More

It is here that the cardinals of the catholic church have stayed for years to decide about the policy against Luther and protestantism. It is an amazing castle, boasting exceptional frescoes. You must visit it when in Trento. A visit takes at least a couple of hours, you actually get lost inside...

A fabulous castle filled with wonderful paintings and art. There are some interesting and outstanding pictures, including an amaxing painting of the Council of Trent.The Egyptian collection is small but excellent. Don't miss it! One needs a good two hours or so to enjoy everything. For older people, some of the entrances may be a bit steep.

Splendid castle with stunning ceilings and architecture which has be a part of any visit to the lovely city of Trento. Euro 16 for a family ticket for interesting displays, exhibitions and great views of Trento. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I visited this castle after searching through TA . This place was beautiful . It cost an extra euro to tour the tower with the frescos in it , but worth it . The tower was English friendly and with lots to see and read . Very good day here !

It was a rather rainy day, so we took our time to tour the castle and take in the history. Huge place but well worth it.

Well-maintained castle residence. Plenty of information boards and a very good audio guide. Full of history from medieval to modern times. Anything less than 4 hours and you are only scratching the surface. Staff are friendly and very helpful. If they don't speak English themselves, they will find somebody who does. Plenty of parking within reasonable walking distance. Definitely worth... More
