Although unplanned, seeing this castle was a perfect start to our Italian vacation with Soave as a 1-night stop heading west from Venice airport. The castle is easily doable because not very large but not commercialized as many of the famous ones, but had an authentic old world charm. Good for exploring on your own without guide, but do pay...

Dont forget to stop by the innkeepers home and pay your ticket to head up to the castle. No photography is allowed- you can always visit the official website and see great ones. Lots of steps!!

The castle is early Medieval, so it's not huge. It's well-preserved and beautiful. Most of the castles in the area are in ruins, but Soave has been well-maintained. There are some interesting old pieces of furniture in the castle along with some other artifacts. From the top there's an excellent view of the surrounding hills. If you're interested in castles,...

I loved this castle. It is well worth a visit and if you feel up to it, the walk via the paths and steps offers views on the way. Although photography is not allowed within the castle interior it is allowed on the outside areas and you can get some wonderful panoramas. The staff are efficient and friendly.

Castle is lovely and I am giving it 5 stars for that but unfortunately the guide only spoke Italian so we didn't get to understand the history of the castle which was a shame given you pay an entry fee and they offer both an Italian brochure and English so we thought they would have an English guide available. Lovely... More

I find this castle are so beautiful. With €7 of entrance you can enjoy the whole castle. From the top you can see the stunning city surrounding of the castle. Will close on Monday. I put some picture the opening hour and the ticketing price, you can check on the pictures.

Not really impressed with this castle. Only two rooms to see. Great photo opportunities of the city.

Excellent castle built in the early 10th century this castle is awesome to walk around and has great veiws over Soave and it's fortified walls and the vineyards and winery. It has medieval furnishings and also there is a small armoury and a good solid tower to walk up and to walk along fortified walls. Toilets on site. Souvenir booklet... More

Beautiful castle. Two rooms to view and you can walk to the tower. We enjoyed. It gets a tad steep walking up, so wear appropriate shoes with good grip for the cobblestone steps.
