My wife and I visited the walled city and castle on a foggy morning during an antique market. We took a steep but short hike from the town square to the castle. It cost us €7 each to get in but I think it was worth it. We were able to explore the entire castle on our own to include... More

While in the Verona area for a few days we stopped at the Soave castle and town for 5 hours. Seeing how the walled town was built and defended and how the castle was used as a lookout for invading tribes from the north gives a real appreciation of life in the 12-1500's. By all means stop and drive up... More

If you are driving from Venice to Verona you will see this massive wall and a castle at the top on your right side. Do make time for it! I drove back as the image was stuck to my head, and I am glad I did. You can drive all the way to the entrance, but you will need to... More

We stopped here as part of a trip to Venice. I wish we a bit more time, I didn't realize the town and castle would be so interesting. Definitely build it into your itinerary if you are in the area. Vicenza, Verona, Venice, and Soave are proximal to the area. Give yourself some time to explore. This is a wonderful... More

My husband loves Medieval castles, so I found Soave castle on the Trip advisor. It’s located approximately 30 min drive from Verona and if you rent a car you MUST go there. First, it doesn’t have many visitors! When we got there afternoon, we saw maybe 6 people there!!! The caste is huge and very well preserved! It still have... More

This castle is only 10-15 min outside of Verona and is just a real gem. You can climb to the top for views is the city. Cost is 7 euro per person to enter which is a little costly but I love the views and the little bit of furniture in the castle (no pictures allowed inside however).

We saw it from the Autostrada on our way back from Verona and decided to check it out. O.M.G. Soave is a charming little town topped by this beautiful and amazing castle. We will stay in Soave the next time we are in Italy and definitely tour the inside of the castle. The grounds were amazing!

It is a steep walk up from the centre of the beautiful city of Soave, but it is so worth it. Be aware that the last entrance is approximately one hour before the ticket office closes. There are a few beautifully decorated rooms to visit within the castle, but the majority of the visit entails climbing the ramparts - again... More

This castle has AMAZING views and an amazing shell. There are LOTS of stairs and it is a lot of climbing, so make sure all parties are up for the task. This castle is more of a shell, as it is missing a lot of the original interior parts. The tower still exists, as do a few rooms with furniture... More

Nice place, nice walk up the hill. It's a bit too expensive for what it offers. My 4 years old child was excited with the visit.
