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
We were lucky enough to arrive here during culture week. So we got a free guided tour of the castle. Very interesting history and the guide was very informative (even though we were told the guide only spoke in Italian )! She actually spoke 3...More
