One of the best Castles you'll vist

Terrifically preserved and restored, with original furnishings this is the best in the Aosta valley and perhaps the best in Northern Italy. Don't miss it.

If you at all like castle, don't miss this one. The frescoes are rather unique and a must if you at all touched by such things. The visit is guided by a very friendly local, at least on our visit. If you have to wait for the next tour, take a right turn out the main door and follow the... More

Very interesting, a guide is recommended, tour lasts around 30 minutes, give a great insight into the past and the history of the castle and others in the region. I expected the castle to be much bigger, even so it was an enjoyable experience for the family, three younger children seemed to like it too

If you like impressive medieval castles, this is worth the drive. It is well north of Turin in the beautiful Alps.

Beautiful location and exterior. Unfortunately we couldn't have a visit inside the castle as there were very few places left on the tours due to how busy the castle and town was. Would visit again in the future.

The castle opens at 0930 according to the posted information, but arrive at 1015 and you're likely to be able to examine the outside walls prior to gaining entrance. But, once inside, the visit is definitely worth your having waited. The owners are renovating to castle according to what it once was. Some furnishings are authentic, but even those that... More

Amazingly well preserved medieval castle! It is quite massive, awesome how much of it you get to see. A treat to see a castle furnished, really lets you step back in time! Our tour guide was so friendly, she really tried hard to help us understand even though we didn't speak Italian (we missed the last English tour.) It was... More

This place is great. It's one of the finest castle you can visit in this part of Italy. With an admission fee of 3 euros for students (3.50 for others), you have access to most of the castle (with a guide, you can't go around by yourself). The guide (speaks Italian) knows a lot about the place, and will be... More

Fenis is a really perfect little medieval castle - typical for this region of Italy. The Frescos are magnificent - especially the St George and the Dragon. You can only visit this castle by a guided tour - In Italian - But the Castle has good leaflets in other languages to help Non-Italian visitors understand the place. When there is... More
