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...

When in Europe, no matter what country, a visit to a castle is mandatory. I've been to castles in France and this one doesn't compare to some of the biggest ones there. However, if in the area to go skiing, this is a great place to stop. They have a tour in Italian but there are panels in each room... More

The Fenis Castle is one of the most beautiful Castle that you can visit: due to the style and the architecture it's really peculiar; the staff is organized for visiting the Castle, not only outside but also inside. The maintenance is of high quality, reason why you can appreciate medioeval frescoes.

Unfortunately didn't have a full tour around the Castle but this still didn't deter us from finding great photo opportunities.

This rather compact, fortress like castle from the late middle ages is a thing of beauty. Very cleverly constructed, with two walls to defend it, it has those peculiar v-shaped crenels and many different shaped towers. Inside (no photo's allowed) you get a guided tour in Italian :-( for about an hour. It takes you through the castle where the... More
