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.

  • If you are into modern architecture and are familiar with the work of Carlo Scarpa, you should not miss this museum. Scarpa worked on restoring the castle and setting up the exhibition in the 1960s...

  • Lots to see, impressive paintings and sculptures. I'm taking a star off as it is like a maze, lots of routes end with dead end. Lots of groups there on tours, blocking paths, doors, I couldn't see glass doors to exit when I tried to leave! A large group stood in front of them, no signage pointing the way. Ticket cost reasonable, you should go early in morning to avoid crowds. Great views from walls.
  • One of the main historic attractions of Verona, top of the Must See list. Rather busy place, worth to arrive early in the morning. Museum collection quite interesting, mostly paintings and some sculptures. Beautiful view point as well. Entry included in Verona Card.
