Quality photo of Verres Castle - Italy

Verres Castle
Italy

75 min

The uniqueness of the Verrès Castle lies in its construction because it is considered one of the first examples of a single structure castle, rather... than the more common castle design consisting of series of buildings. That’s the reason why its exteriors seem quite simple and serious and lack the usual opulence that pop into our mind when we think of castles. Interiors, however, are completely contrasting the sever outsides. The majestic staircase, arches, decoration of the windows, doors and colossal fireplaces will exceed all expectations.

Basilica of Superga
Italy

105 min

In 1706, during the French-Spanish siege the Duke of Savoy Victor Amadeus II vowed to build a church if proved victorious in this battle. The... result of this vow is Basilica of Superga built on a hill across the river Po. Being located on a hilltop, Basilica offers stunning panoramic views of the city panorama and the Alps; in turn, it can be seen from miles around. The interiors of Basilica match its grand exterior, with gaudy decorations, massive Corinthian columns and intricate carvings. Unfortunately, this astonishing church is linked to a dreadful tragedy which happened in 1949 when a plane carrying the entire Turin football team, known as Grande Torino, crashed into basilica. There is now a memorial at the rear of basilica where the accident occurred.

Fenis Castle
Italy

105 min

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.

Issogne Castle
Italy

75 min

This elegant Renaissance castle is situated on the right bank of the Dora Baltea, in the centre of the Alpine town of Issogne. The first... documentation of the Issogne Castle dates from the mid 12th century but it reached the zenith of splendor throughout the 15th and 16th centuries when George of Challant transformed it into a magnificent residence. 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.

Fort Bard
Italy

105 min

With its ominous and sever look Fort Bard dominates the town of Bard and represents the most impressive example of military architecture. 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. Besides the stunning views, visitors can learn more about the fortress through a guided tour and at the Museum of the Alps.

Aosta
Italy

75 min

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.
