If you're not used to physical exercise, this climb will bring all the sweat out of you, but it is well worth it. There is a little plateau half the way up on your left that has a bench, where you can sit, take a couple awesome pictures and catch your breath. But don't stop here. When you get on... More

Great view of Verona from the top- 200 plus steps up but it was worth it. The children loved it. Stunning on a clear day.

A long walk up multiple stairs, certainly not suitable for anyone with any mobility issues.Once we reached the top we had superb views across Verona. There is a bar/cafe at the top which is well worth a visit we enjoyed a good coffee.

Quite a climb, but well worth it to enjoy Verona from above. Try and time it so you arrive for the sunset.

This is a must! It takes some effort if you don't like walking up a bunch of stairs, but well worth it. The panoramic views of the whole Verona are fantastic. Great for taking photos. Go for it!

View definitely worth effort...but effort is indeed involved. You will not find better views of the city. The panoramic view of Verona made the agony of the stairs seem worthwhile. Go for it.

We loved the view over Verona. It gives you a nice perspective. Climb a couple dozen steps and you'll be truly rewarded. And best of all, it's free.

Located on the top of a hill, it offers almost a complete view of the city and the Roman Theatre located underneath There is a small parking and you can walk downstairs to the ancient theatre still used these days for musical events.

Although the Castel was undergoing restoration the views over Verona were exemplary. Well worth the effort to climb all the stairs to the top
