SARRE, ITALY: Castle Sarre has a long history dating back to the 13th century. The castle is situated on a small hill not far from the town of Aosta and overlooks the Aosta Valley. The castle was summer residence of the royal family Savoy of Italy until the middle of the 20th century. Today rooms with an authentic interior can be visited. The castle was used as a place for hunting trips to the nearby mountains and has a room with impressive hunting trophies.
AOSTA VALLEY, ITALY: On a trip through the Valle d’Aosta we noticed an impressive old castle ruin on a hill. The old ruin was Saint Germain Castle. The ruin can be reached from a small parking place at an old church directly over a short but steep footpath. The ruin was surrounded by a fence, but the gate was open and we could visit it. Unfortunately there is very little to know about this ruin. The castle is said to have been abandoned since the 1660s and was probably built around the 13th century.
VERRES, ITALY: The Valle d’Aosta is a fantastic area in the north of Italy in the middle of the Alps. The valley borders directly on Switzerland and France and has the highest and most beautiful mountains in Europe, Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. The valley is a wonderful destination for hikes to the peaks of the mountains or for exploring the numerous historical sites dating back to Roman times of over 2000 years ago.
