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.

This is an amazing castle and the view from afar, particularly at night is beautiful. There is a huge collection of works, however the main facade of the fortified perimeter is worth the walk around its exterior, with its massive towers and the entrance arch on the bridge. It was last renovated in 2007 and it has transformed old art... More

Much of the original castle may have been destroyed but its very effective re-modelling has turned it into a compact and informative survey of some major figures in Veronese art from the 12th to 17th centuries. Another part of Verona that delivers much more than its external appearance would suggest.

this is a large collection of art set out in a very creative and easy to digest way that walks you through the old buildings and out onto the top of the outer walls of the castle for some lovely city views. We had teenagers and grandfather in tow and all loved it!
