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.

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!

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.
