Museo Di Castle Vecchio, Verona Reviews - Write a Review
Interesting museum portraying plenty of historical art works. The building is impressive with some interesting renovations made (for those who are architecturally interested). Unfortunately descriptions of works exhibited was minimal with only one card per language (hand held and generally shared around once the person has finished reading). I would recommend fitted descriptions and information attached to the walls in larger text to allow for more people to read at the same time. Otherwise it was a pleasant visit.
Well, after visiting museums throughout Italy, I wouldn't say this museum was the most interesting BUT what I enjoyed most was getting a chance to climb up to the castle wall sections with terrific views overlooking Verona's river and town. It is high up enough to experience serious vertigo while walking around the parapets. It's near a major bus stop. It is a delight walking around the castle's interiors (a great location for modeling -- I saw a photographer and model doing a shoot while I was there). Overall, the big plus is Verona itself -- as a tourist destination, my sense is that it tries harder than over-touristed cities such as Rome or Venice or Florence.
You must visit and spend a few hour. It is the best place in day time at Verona for a traveller in my personal taste.
Excellent monument of medieval fortification of XIV century. Inside you are going to find wonderful museum with great collections of fine arts of XIII-XVII centuries. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light. Must see place at Verona.
Beautiful place, staff was snobby. Let my adult child go in with my two younger ones because my wife and I could not justifie paying almost 50€ for all of us to go in. Some time later I asked to use the restroom and they said it was beyond the spot where you paid and I would have to buy a ticket. Needless to say I went out to the street looking for a shop with a restroom.
