At the top of a grassy knoll, Castle of Fenis features limestone watchtowers that rise high above the countryside. An opulent residence for the Challant family in medieval times, the pentagonal castle is now a museum run by the Aosta Valley autonomous region. Once inside the double boundary wall, you'll enter the ground floor to see the kitchen, woodshed, rainwater storage tank, and a display of medieval weaponry. Climb the stairs to the first floor to explore the lords' rooms and the chapel, where you'll find Giacomo Jacquerio's majestic frescoes. Guided tours are only in Italian, but informative pamphlets are available in other languages.

  • It's a beautiful castle in the middle age, free for children under 6 years however a bit expensive for what it is for adults (€ 7 per person). Attention the visit is done in Italian

  • Very interesting place. A well-preserved castle all to enjoy: choose the guided tour, it's rather cheap and the guide is prepared and kind. The most fascinating thing is discovering how they lived back in Middle Age through the rooms and the remaining forniture.
  • Lovely castle from mideaval times. Well preserved. Guidede tour in Italian only, small posters with some English info. Missed more information on how people lived there. Walk paintings impressive.
  • This is a pretty castle close to Aosta that's worth the visit of you're in the vicinity. It's quite small, but there are interesting guided tours and the frescos are worth a look.
  • You MUST take a guided tour, you cannot explore on your own and you must wait for a tour start that isn't fully booked (we had to wait longer than the total length of the tour).
  • Splendido, ben tenuto, brave le guide
