I traveled during the off-season, but even in March the Vatican Museum and Uffizi Gallery were crowded. Not Castelvecchio. I almost had the place to myself. If you are interested in medieval religious art or early Renaissance art, this is a good value. With your entry ticket, you also get the chance to walk around on the castle's ramparts for... More

Used the Veronacard to get free admission (can get this at the tourist office near the Arena). Interesting mix of castle tour and art history, particularly from the 13th and 14th centuries. For those not interested in religious period art, there is still the benefit of seeing the castle structure and walking the rampart. For those interested in religious art,... More

The museum had a really extensive medieval art exhibition, and some interesting modern installation in the garden. Go ustairs and walk outside you can get a good view of the Adige (the canal...

A truly great way to spend a morning or afternoon. So much history. This Museo is beautifully restored and a wonderful way to capture some of the history and heritage of beautiful Verona.

I traveled here in July of 2014 and thought it was very cool! The entire castle is surrounded by a huge moat and it is extremely interesting to walk around the grounds. Verona itself is a major walking city and I really recommend spending an entire day just getting lost amongst the tiny streets filled with old ruins.

The gardens outdoors surrounded by the moat are pleasant to look at and once inside the Castle the Roman statues and tablets, large metal bells used to signal warnings, and armory are interesting. There are lots of paintings from the 14th Century by Verona artists and there's are two Giovanni Bellini Madonnas and an Andrea Mantagne Madonna. Do walk outside... More

Visitors wend their way through the rooms of the Castelvecchio, admiring sculptures and paintings from different eras along the way. It's even possible to walk along the ramparts and get a view of the city from above. I recommend purchasing the Verona Card if you plan to visit other attractions.
