Castelvecchio, Verona: 52 reviews and 111 photos

by tini58de

The castle is an imposing building from the medieval Veronese period. It was built in the 14th century and was designed as a defence against both outside invasions and popular rebellion.

The surrounding area allowed for a fast and easy escape from the city: after crossing the fortified bridge, which was only accessible to the noble family, the road to the north along the Adige valley was a secure route....

Inside the Castelvecchio you can find a wonderful museum!

Directions: right on the banks of the river Adige
