The Scaligeri family built and occupied the castle from 1343-1356 as a residence and fortress. It houses the city's art gallery and has great views of the city, river, and Ponte Scaligero. We leisurely strolled through the castle on a sunny, warm day. The views are picturesque and we didn't linger too long in the art galleries. It was fun... More

As we had time to wonder, we stumbled upon this after walking through the Arena. We decided to go through this and we were both thrilled we did. Such a beautiful sight to see. We were short on time so we didn't do the full tour. But it was beautiful maintained and kind of gives you and idea of what... More

We were not aware of the castle museum and happened to pass it walking around Verona. It turned out to be very interesting and we ended up spending about an hour looking at the various exhibits. The castle provided a look at life during the middle ages......lovely paintings, artifacts, and grounds. There is no cafe for a snack or meal.... More

Beautiful place to take pictures and on a sunny day lovely to walk across the castle bridge and up the river to Romano Theatro (20-30min walk) which is also a must see! Recommend to do this on a walking sightseeing trip as you can do all on same day in a loop- Arena, Roman Arches, Romano Theatro, Basilica etc.

The first time we came to Castelvecchio, we decided to give its museum a pass. After all, we could wander around the red-brick castle's grounds for free and easily access the attached Scaligero Bridge, one of Verona's gems. As avid museum goers, however, we began to wonder how the former 14th-century home and defensive fortification worked as a museum focusing... More

In the heart of Verona city center, great museum packed with architecture gems, sculptures and paintings. Will take 3 hours for a thorough visit. Special mention for the only statue you will ever see of a happily smiling warrior riding a horse and the paintings with tactile technology for visually impaired visitors. Ah, and until the 22/01/17 the entrance fee... More

A visit to the Museum in a Special Location where the Location it self it is a Museum! This Museum it is a very old Location of the Medieval Castle of the Lords of the City (Family Cangrande). And it is very well manteined and the Castle can gives the idea of the life at the medieval time.

If you like medieval stuff, this is heaven for you. The architecture, the wall murals, the corridors and passages, plus the extensive art collection transports you in time! The best part is that when you are out on the other side, the bridge is amazing as well, with nice views over the other side of the city.

I like castles. This one is pretty interesting I would have liked to see more but what one can access is enough. Rooms are dedicated to art, how many Madonna and child can you manage? Some very good but a bit of a surfeit. Good value though
