Create an itinerary including Museo di Castelvecchio
Explore a small-but-varied collection of medieval paintings, sculptures, weapons, and ornamental objects alongside modern art at Museo di Castelvecchio, housed in the 14th century castle of the same name. Between 1959 and 1973, modernist architect Carlo Scarpa restored and enhanced the castle, adding his own features and creating special fixtures to hold some of the artworks. The layout resembles a modern art gallery, rather than a historical museum, with ample space to appreciate each artifact. A fortified, red-brick bridge attached to the castle provides sweeping views of the river and surrounding countryside.

  • It really is a castle with a lot of old stuff in it. Walking on the walls was cool- lots of great photo opportunities and views of Verona. The paintings were a little repetitive- dare I say boring.....  more

  • This is one of the most beautiful historical places of Verona. Visit it by day to learn the amazing history of this castle and by night for the magical atmosphere it releases. Perfect if together with that significant other ;)
  • After we bought our tickets from the lobby we were told that we have to left the strollers behind. After that we were ready to start but in the first room we were stopped and they told that we can’t take our daughter with us she is 1year and 9 months old. My husband had to stay in the lobby with our daughter. I wonder why we weren’t told this before we bought our tickets🤔 if we knew this earlier we wouldn’t go there. No one who worked there spoke English very well and many of them were very rude!!
