Among the most famous of the castles in the Aosta Valley, Fenis strikes visitors with its triumph of towers and crenellated walls. The castle sits on flat ground, which is unusual; Aimone de Challant improved it by building an impressive defensive...more
The castle itself looked amazing, standing proud up on its hill. After climbing up to the entrance we found that only groups were allowed, no individual visits, and the tours were in Italian. Whilst we considered joint a group just to see the inside, we...More
Although it’s not easy to get to with public transport, as the buses are very infrequent and often delays, this castle is a must go if you are visiting the Valle d’Aosta region. The castle is built in late medieval-renaissance style and well maintained thanks...More

This was a fantaiasticly preserved castle with beautiful murals and quirky rooms where you can imagine the people of 1000 years ago living. A guided tour is in Italian but they try to help out with English to enable you to understand the various building...More
