if you are interested in italian paintings of the 14/15th century this is a place to go. The works may not be grand, but there are a lot of interesting paintings, frescoes, also up to the 18th century.

Verona itself did not impress me. However the Castelvecchio was the high point of the visit. The vies from the bridge were outstanding.

One of my favourite sights we visited. Lots of different areas to explore including the perimeter walk way and views of the river.

I am not a museum person. I don't spend hours looking at art as other people do. But… I could not help myself in Castelvecchio. Beautiful art in it! And… explore the Castel for amazing views of Verona! Don't miss it while in Verona.

Huge museum, very interesting, take your time to visit (you will need a few hours). After that you will enjoy an excellent ice cream across the street.

Fans of Carlo Scarpa will appreciate this castle transformed into a museum. Done 50 years ago but still quite modern within the ancient castle framework.

Be ready to do some stairs when you visit this location. It's well worth the visit to see the art work.

We really enjoyed our visit to this museum. The paintings were particularly wonderful to see aided by comprehensive English explanation cards in each room. My only negative comment would be about the staff who followed us through each room. I understand the need for security for such precious works of art but we did not strike such close supervision in... More

Haven't you always wanted to climb all over a medieval castle? Especially one with its own moat? Right on a scenic river! Here's your chance! The museum is wonderful, and the chance to roam freely in a castle such as this is unique.
