Castelvecchio museum
Castelvecchio was built in the 14th century in a strategic position: near the city walls, the river and the fortified structure by the Ghibelline walls and towers, with a large parade ground and, above all, with the main tower at the entrance of the bridge. It provided a way out in case of danger, for an escape to the north. Over the centuries it continued to have a military function and, after the reign of the lords of Milan, with the domination of Venice it became an academy. With Napoleon were then added two new wings in the building and it finally played a strategic role in the overall plan of the fort city with the Austrians. Only in the 20th century the City of Verona decided to transfer here the section of medieval and modern art of the Civic Museum. The present layout of the building and its exhibition spaces are the result of a major restoration and construction, built between 1956 and 1964 by the architect Carlo Scarpa. The collection consists mainly on paintings and sculptures from the 12th to the 18th century. It also has some collections of antique weapons, numismatics, a cabinet of prints, a library of art.

Archaeological Museum
This museum was built into an ex convent built in the 15th century. The convent was distributed in several floors of large terraces that was dug into the hills in Roman times. The area was used as a museum in 1923, when an archaeological collections  was transferred there and the artifacts carried by the river or extracts from the excavations in the city and the surrounding area.  During the tour with the guide from www.aguideinverona.com you can also enjoy a beautiful view of Verona and the Adige from above, in addition to a comprehensive view of the theater remains.
