Well preserved/restored castle from the 13th - 15th C.

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

The castle itself is a good attraction to visit. But beware - if you do not understand Italian then it is useless going - you will not be permitted to tour the castle alone and the tours done by a very knowledgeable guide are only in Italian and we were never informed at the cash! So if you do not... More

We loved the castle not expecting to see it in such good condition especially the frescoes and furniture (thanks in part to restoration over the years). However we were a bit frustrated at the requirement to join a group tour especially when the guide only speaks Italian and didn't ask if everyone understood Italian. Only some signs in some rooms...
