We had hoped to learn more about the castle and the history of Verona but the Musuem only houses staues and paintings with a small collection of weapons and armour.

Very near to Piazza Bra, this is a very interesting place to visit, and also gives you easy access to the other side of the river together with brilliant views. Before you do that though, don't miss out on exploring the castle including the simple...More

This 14th century castle, built by the Scaligeri ruler, Cangrande II, is fun to explore. The high defensive walls with fancy castellations can be walked along and the high clock tower can be entered. There are intriguing courtyards to find. Inside the castle building is...More

This is a nice castle with good vantage points to take photos of the river. There is a very extensive collection of medieval and modern religious artwork. I found, however, the staff to be very intrusive compared to other times I have been to galleries...More

Although the art in this castle museum ranges from (approximately) the 12th to the 17th centuries the lay-out is very modern, even though the paintings and sculptures sit in medieval rooms (one with almost completely intact wall paintings). Well curated, you get both art and...More
