View definitely worth effort...but effort is indeed involved. You will not find better views of the city. The panoramic view of Verona made the agony of the stairs seem worthwhile. Go for it.

We loved the view over Verona. It gives you a nice perspective. Climb a couple dozen steps and you'll be truly rewarded. And best of all, it's free.

Located on the top of a hill, it offers almost a complete view of the city and the Roman Theatre located underneath There is a small parking and you can walk downstairs to the ancient theatre still used these days for musical events.

Although the Castel was undergoing restoration the views over Verona were exemplary. Well worth the effort to climb all the stairs to the top

It is well worth climbing the 147 steps to the top as it is the best view of Verona. You need to be fit! The castle is not open to the public. Lovely place to see the sunset.

This is undoubtedly the best view of Verona. The all isn't too bad so don't worry about the reviews that say it is, and this is coming from a guy with a leg full of pins and a plate. The view of the old city and the Arno is beautiful and you can really see the great light green colour... More

We climbed the steps starting across from the pietra bridge, it is quite a climb up to the castle but the views out over the city are well worth the effort.

Imposing situated high above Verona a trip to the top is a must.The Castel is under renovation at the moment but it's a wonderful walk to the top, the views are stunning and there's a great bar too for a Aperol Spritz or two.

A bit of a walk (15 minutes at a slow pace) up many flights of steps to the castle which affords great views of the city when you reach the top. Best avoided in the midday heat but good after a late breakfast. Didn't encounter any organised groups up here either.
