Italy is full of surprises to the intrepid traveller! This museum purports to boast some fine examples of medieval sculpture, with Baroque and Rococco paintings on its upper floor. I was astonished to learn that several art works had been recently stolen in a heist and polite paper notices were tacked to the empty walls, where the pictures had once... More

This is a well set out museum in an interesting building. The works of art are well lit and generously spaced to give an uncluttered impression. Although there are no major works, there are paintings by, amongst others, Tintoretto and Veronese. Being the former home of the ruling family of Verona, there are some interesting parts to the building and... More

I was there the first Sunday of November and it just costs 1€ to visit. There are so many paintings inside I was there all the morning and really worth it!

We only went through the bridge. It's nice and the scenery from the bridge down the stream is nice. But it's nothing much. Good to look around thats it

Unless you are interested in the art collection from the museum, the castle does not worth a visit. There is not a lot that you can see from it, is more an art exhibition. It costs 6€ the entrance (4.5 with students ID)

A fantastic layout and exciting to walk in different parts of the castle. A good collection of a variety of pieces, we enjoyed all with the exception of the random "current" art installation. Disappointing that thieves stole so much last year.

Well worth visiting to see the amazing size of this castle. The history and artifacts give you a real sense of how Verona has undergone many rulers!

New life has been breathed into the old building with great design. Your tour of the galleries is punctuated by some of the best views of Verona. I found that the information sheets in each room were much more entertaining that the dry fare in other galleries. Definitely worth a few hours.
