Museo di Castelvecchio, Verona

4.5
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.

  • Interesting and worthwhile, good presentation of the history of the scalers. Even the toilet fit at that time ..., not suitable for everyone!

  • Such a wonderful castle and amazing work of arts inside. It's worth a visit. The bridge is also stunning
  • It might have helped to have enter the Castle at sunset - the views from the old walls is insanely gorgeous! The museum is so nicely kept and the artifacts, stone sculptures and urns, paintings and frescoes beautifully displayed. A must see in Verona! Really suggest going at sunset (museum closes at 7.30 pm)
