  • Regina Margherita of Italy is famous in the whole world. Many people don’t realise this. Pizza Margherita is named after her; allegedly she didn’t like anchovies - these were dutifully removed from...

  • Small castle from the end of the 19th century, located in a very beautiful place. The guided visit is slightly too long for what's to see there, but nice nonetheless.
  • The castle was built by will of Queen Margherita of Savoy in August 1899 and the works lasted until 1904. It stands in a place with an incredible view of the valley and the Lyskamm glacier. The residence hosted the Queen during her summer stays until 1925, a year before her death. After that the castle was not used for several years. It was sold in 1936 to the Milanese businessman Moretti and then sold again to the Valle d'Aosta Autonomous Region in 1981. I suggest to book your tickets online since visits are only with a guide and run every hour.
  • Excellent experience. Very interesting castle and history wonderfully narrated by our guide Graziano. Highly recommended and very affordable
  • Nice castle in the middle of the mountain
  • Tours only in Italian but they have brochures in several languages. Our guide was excellent and loved to talk so the tour was a little longer than normal.
