Very good place to take a quick peak. Nice view from the Auto Strada

Nice views and even looking up from the Auto Strada. A small town. The magestic walls are like out of a movie

Soave Castle is quite impressive - high above the town, with crenellated ramparts, a moat, and dungeon - in otherwords, everything you'd expect from a Medieval castle. It involves quite a bit of climbing to see ever more impressive views. The "museum" part is fairly casual, with a bit of old furniture, a couple of modern sets of armor, and... More

Not worth the money to see the castle. Very small and not much to it. If you want a small town feeling of the old medieval times go to Cittadella. Very, very expensive for the experience. 7 Euro/adult and 4 Euro for kids 5 and up. So not worth it.

1400 revisited...well worth the visit in lovely historic walled town of Soave...so glad we spent a few nights here...quite different than Tuscany and Umbria...still very rustic.

Weekend in Soave? We wanted to sees the castle and We went up the steep hill on the right side of the castle. But when we got up there it was closed. There were no signs to tell us the opening hours so we were a bit disappointed! Beside this the walking tour payed off when we got up. Nice... More

We arrived just after the Castle closed for lunch and they close for around 3 hours so we felt that it was not worthwhile waiting for it to re-open again. We really enjoyed the pretty countryside painted in vineyards all around Soave. The Castle as you would expect is one the top of the hill overlooking the village and surrounding... More

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!
