Aosta, the capital of the Valle d’Aosta, not only has some amazing Roman ruins, but these ruins have been incorporated into the city and many... buildings are built on Roman foundations. Sights not to be missed in Aosta are Amphitheater which could hold up to 20,000 people; Roman Bridge, a perfectly preserved bridge which is still used today even though the river no longer runs under it; and Augustus' Arch built in 25 BC to mark Rome's victory over the Celtic Salassi tribe.

It was neglected... for many years but luckily restored and reopened for tourists in 2006. Today it attracts thousands of visitors a year. How unconquerable this fortress really is proves the fact that the castle’s garrison of 400 people was able to hold back 40,000 French troops for full 2 weeks.

At the very entrance visitors are welcomed by the famous wrought-iron pomegranate tree fountain, which is, along with the superb frescoes on the portico, of an extraordinary expressive value. There is so much for visitors to discover here: from the ground floor dining room and kitchen, the first floor chapel with decorated arch vaults and Gothic altar, and the second floor rooms with beautifully covered ceilings and furniture of that time.

This imposing Fenis Castle is without a doubt the most visited attraction in Valle d’Aosta. Unlike most of the castles that were built on top... of a hill, Fenis Castle has no natural defenses, but has double crenellated surrounding walls that enclose the central building and the towers. It is actually a combination of a fortified stronghold and the aristocratic, majestic home. Visitors are free to explore the extraordinary architecture while the interior can be visited through a guided tour that includes armory, dining room, pantry, kitchen, study, counts’ chambers as well as the splendid chapel.
