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.

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.

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
