This castle can only be visited with a guide (every 30min) because it has a lot of furniture which makes it quite special. It is not a king's castle but you can imagine the family of nobles living there and it actually looks like they left recently. And I discovered that graffiti was an ancient activity!

Some reports claimed its a gem or a dismal no show as castles go. From the outside it seems massive,severe,almost anonymous. Be that as it may, it is also famed for its frescoes. The entrance hall and inner portico are extraordinary with a freshness expressing everyday life and craft activities.

Driving around Val d'Aoste, you get the sense there is castle around every turn and on every hill, so when we read that this was one of the best castles, we went without hesitation.

This castle is a real gem - if you like renaissance art. More of a palace / stately home, than a castle the court rooms and colonnades are magnificently decorated. Unfortunately one can not take photographs inside the castle - But still it is worth seeing for its colourful and artistic magnificence. The tour is in Italian (and one has... More

From the outside it is quite uninteresting, but interiors are stunning. Most rooms are furnished, giving the visitor an idea about how it was. Very interesting frescos, with funny graffiti on them (the classic name+date, but date is in 1600!!) Our guide was very good and since we were the only visitors, we could ask anything we wanted. Low price.... More

The building interior is well appointed and the murals were great. But the guide made me feel uncomfortable since I'm a photographer and constantly was hurrying me along in fear that I may take a picture (photos not allowed in any castle in Val d'Aosta). Also she realized that I was American and spoke quickly in Italian and thouogh I... More
