Totally deluded with the service. Been here the second time with my family. First of all when we arrived at 11.30 we've been said that there is no tickets available till 14.00, because the group consists of 25 people only. We wanted to visit both...More

Drove here from Aosta. Wanted to buy tickets and was informed that you need to join a group of ca. 25 people to see the castle. OK, has been the case in many places. Not allowed to just look by yourself. Then we were informed...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

The castle is beautiful and well worth a visit but the welcome from the organisation managing it is really disappointing. You're only allowed to enter on a tour (so far, so good), however tours are only in Italian. It's not fair to expect them to...More

The castle is magnificent to look at and is clearly well maintained. To enter the castle, you need to purchase a guided tour (only 7euros) however these run on the hour every hour - so if you miss a slot, you'd be waiting a while...More

We didn't go in the castle because the tour is only in Italian and there was a 1 hour wait but just walking around the castle and the near by flower gardens was magnificent and worth coming. The castle is very impressive on the outside.

This castle is surely very nice outside and inside, maybe even the best castle in the enchanting Aosta Valley. It is a very great historical addition to the visit of the Ancient Roman city of Aosta, this time to feel the Medieval classic times. The...More
