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 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

On our way home we decided to visit the beautiful chateau de Fènis, as it is easily reachable from the highway. The stopover was worthwhile. The castle is well preserved with many original features and interesting stories the knowledgeable guides share with the visitors. The...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
