We had a walk through the museum and saw various pieces of art, old swords etc. Walking on the "walls" was awesome and the views stunning. Just an honour to experience the beauty, history and old world charm of this castle.

Amazing architecture of the Renaissance period. A large and well maintained museum with wonderful pieces of Art and cavalry helmet, swords etc. And you can view Verona below you in all its beauty. The castle itself is very beautiful, a very nice place to visit for all the family.

I found that the art displayed was very repetitive. The majority of the pieces were paintings of Madonna and Child. Although they were all done by different artists they just lose their charm after a while. My favorite room was the one with the sword and armory displays. The views of the river are very nice especially in the evening.... More

A masterpiece wich beautifully blends with the quiet lives of modern Italian people. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it is opened for everybody to walk and bike through it's street. It's the classical move of italians to combine the ancient with the modern. It's imponent walls and bridge are really beautiful and you will feel like walking back... More

I understand that recently they had a fifth from the museum however the security did make me feel uncomfortable. Apart from that a very beautiful place and well preserved. Expensive but I guess it would have to be. Lots of info missing around the place in English but it's all pretty much the same.

We enjoyed this, even though there is a fair amount of somewhat repetitive art work. However there is a lot of good stuff and some good views if you walk up onto the rampart areas.

The Castelvecchio really took us by surprise we hadn't done much research on Verona before visiting as our plan was only to visit nearby Lazise at Lake Garda. We parked just outside the city centre and decided to have a walk around there all of a sudden was this magnificent castle. The rest of Verona was also stunning well worth... More
