Lovely decorated castle, definitely worth a visit. Only guided visits are allowed and guide speaks Italian. Guide did give abstract in English and the frescoes and inventory of the castle are beautiful.

Loved it! It was cold, guide was taking the tour in Italian language, but he pointed out few things in English special for us, which was very nice. Frescoes were wonderful and well preserved. Couldn't believe they so old! enjoyed every minute of 1hour tour!

Castello di Issogne is definitely worth to visit since this is one of the castles in Aosta Valley that is well preserved. First of all we wanted to see the frescoes in the courtyard of the castle because they are very different from paintings we...More

We were told that this is the most beautiful castle in the Aosta Valley and we fully agree. It is a beautiful castle and the guided tour costs only 5 euro. The tour may be in Italian, but you will get what is explained. The...More
