After doing hill towns for a week, I only did a midway up, but the park at the base is a pleasant resting place

The guard closes the castle early at 11:45 so his lunch does not get interrupted. There were approximately 15 people trying to get in. The guard shouted and waved his hands at us when we tried to enter. Looking at another reviewer on 29 July 2012, this seems to be a common practice. We couldn't wait 3 hours until it... More

This medieval building is something you cannot miss when visiting Soave, the arms room is wonderful and the walk inside the ancient walls are worth it!

Worth the visit, nothing special other than the views across the local area. There were a few rooms which were sparsely furnished, the trouble is everything looked too high a quality to be original.

An excellent fortification with superb views over the Veneto. The medieval rooms are well worth a visit.

A very old castle - we only visited from the outside as the castle was closed for a few days. The area around the castle is pretty and worth going to eat out and drinking wine from the area.

Soave is one of those tiny Italian hill towns that you could miss altogether if you blinked at the wrong time while speeding along the autostrada toward Venice. That would be too bad because it is a charming old village at the base of well-preserved castle with a very interesting history. The self-guided tour of the castle was not cheap... More

Great castle to explore. You can climb to the top of the tower and get fantastic views over the surrounding area. Three interesting rooms inside with medieval furniture.

If you want to see Italian history at it's well kept finest, this is it. We were on the highway heading to Venice and saw the castle in the distance. We decided to cut our drive time by 90 minites and check it out. Not one iota of regret. Due to the difficult access to the area, there are few... More
