We had never heard of Castle Vecchio before we visited Verona but it is well worth a visit. A red brick built castle and battlements with a bridge spanning the river Adige, this museum contains some early stone statues and religious artwork from the 13th...More

Lovely bridge and castle which is definitely worth a visit. Not to be confused with the other castle which can be reached via the funicular.

Beautiful castle, which many different areas. There are many art pieces in the museum, but perhaps too many for us. More of an art museum than we had thought.

A must see for history enthusiasts. A nice blend of medieval meets Scarpa. If you are a purist this may throw you off but give it a chance to settle on you. The frescos on the third floor are rich and the way the paintings...More

The actual castle, and the views from the walls and towers are amazing to see. The museum itself is largely a collection of religious art from C14th - C19th with a couple of small rooms of renaissance hand weaponry to view.

You can go into the grounds without paying, but not into the building or around the battlements
