  • Beautiful castle and one of the best spots to take gorgeous photos! Walking distance from the Duomo. Wonderful staff! There are at least a couple on each level to direct us properly. Worth a visit!

  • Amazing piece of history. The design of the self-guided tour is pretty great. Only note, not a kid friendly design, more a museum than a castle tour. Save money with kids and just enjoy the exterior gardens.
  • Visited the Castle Museum during the First Sunday of the Month offer (free entry). Loved the experience!! A nice video showing the history of Trento and the region it was displayed on a large screen on one of the halls. The back yard it was also impressive. A place to visit while in Trento definitely!
