Castelvecchio is really a lovely example of a Medieval Castle. It was converted into a museum in the 1960's, containing mostly religious art. The museum is well laid-out, with open airy rooms featuring sculptures, carvings and paintings of religious subject matter. I mention this because if you're like me, you have to pace yourself with churches, cathedrals & religious art... More

For me the artefacts were more interesting than the endless paintings. The building is beautiful and from the ramparts there are impressive views to the north

Exploring and walking along the castle walls is great. It's really beautiful. When we went inside the museum - which is mainly a modern area with paintings from the middle ages - the guards followed us and stared - very uncomfortable and awkward. The sword and armour collection is interesting.

Climbing up on the towers and castle walls was awesome! There are great views and it's just fun to be on top of a castle and imagine its history. The art inside is a bit too religiously-focused for my taste (so many Madonnas...), but walking around the castle was definitely worth the admission price and was an hour and a... More

Although many of Verona's treasures are still in churches all over the city, the Castelvecchio has scavenged the most amazing amount of statuary, paintings and other artifacts which are now housed in this much-changed and renovated castle. In itself, the building has a very colourful history and it is beautifully set by the river with its own bridge. I am... More

This is really a nice place to stroll. You may see an artist here displaying his wares or a musician there showing off his skills . The place was not crowded at all when we walked there one afternoon. Great view of the river when you look out of the openings. We just took a glimpse of the museum but... More

At the margins of the Agide, an impressive medieval fortress built in the XVI century by the the dominant family, the Scaligera, now a wonderful museum, with medieval sculptures and paintings, renassaince works of art, like the Madonna Della Quaglia from Pisanello, works of Mantegna and others.

We didn't went inside the museum just visited the grounds and the bridge but it was good enough. The view from the top of the bridge to the city and the castle is very beautiful. Look for the little steps in the middle of the bridge to go up!

Great collections of 14-18 century artwork. The castle itself was also worth walking around. Many original structures were preserved. The museum isn't huge, great to plan a 1-2 hour trip there.

I didn't expect anything from this castle because the last time I visited Castel Nuovo in Napoli, it failed me a lot. Since the ticket has students account, I entered it and there were so many collections, including sculpture, paintings, sword and helmets that were used by medieval warriors and many other things! And most of all, the wonderful view... More
