There is very little to see of the castle except for the ruined keep. So very small, and absolutely not worth the adult entrance fee of 7 euros. The very grumpy and rude personnel are of zero help of assistance. Worth visiting only for the good views of the surrounding country.

Soave is about a 45 minute bus trip from Verona. The Soave Castle, built in the tenth century it is in remarkable condition and has a very interesting history. If you have a free day in Verona it is worth the time to take a look. Note: check opening times before you leave Verona.

Interesting castle. I learned a lot about the differences between a church being in charge of the castle and when the king is in charge. The tower was particularly interesting. The restoration looks impeccable.

Castle opens few hour during the day. And it was our mistake don't check this before visit. 12pm-3pm - Castle was closed. It is a very nice view from the top of the Castle, but inside you'll find only walls and one room with small exhibition.

We saw this imposing castle from the train on a journey to Venice and returned a few days later to pay a visit. It is also visible from the E70 motorway near San Bonifacio. The little town of Soave is mostly encompassed by the city walls which go up the hill to join the castle walls. There is a small... More

Got luck and ran into the annual wine fest in Soave - Oh darn! 13/14/15 May 2016. The castle walls surround the small town and it is a fun way to spend a few hours. We drove up to the castle so we did not have the long hike up like others.....good thing too as the castle was closed! We... More

Most people climb up on rocky path. Takes about 15 minutes. You can drive IF you figure out how to do it and if you can find one of the 4-5 parking spots. Best to walk up (very interesting views) and take the back way Down which ends by the church. Admission is 7 €. Castle in place since at... More

We entered the town of Soave and walked through the ancient gates about an hour before sunset with hopes of reaching the top of the castle before sundown. To reach the castle one must hike up a charming, cobbled, centuries old path. When we reached the top, the castle was closed for the day. However, the outside is beautiful to... More

Beautiful castle with fantastic views of its walls going all the way up the hillside from Soave town itself. Still privately owned the visit is not hugely cheap: 2 adults and 2 children -> €22, but it was worth it. Especially thanks to a lady who gave us a guided tour of the inside rooms. We didn't manage to hear... More

We came to Soave for dinner and we saw the castle. We decided to climb to it. Time was very late but almost climb to top. The castle was just as in the middle age. They save it as original. You can easily imagine to how fight for castle in old ages. It was marvelous. I am going to visit... More
