Beautiful castle, exterior as well as the interior. The castle alone is worth visiting the city. Also very nice to relax in the gardens.

Gorgeously maintained historic castle right in the centre of Trento. Well worth a visit. Affordable to visit. I recommend paying the additional 2€ to see the frescoes in the Eagle Tower.

Very large castle to explore. Interesting architectural changes as time progressed. Lovely views of Trento from various areas in the castle. Definitely worth a visit.
