Take a stroll through its medieval streets, admire the many fountains decorating the squares, including the iconic fountain of Elephants. Walk through the old town in the shadow of its mansions with colorful facades. Then head to the castle of the Dukes of Savoy. The medieval wing and the inner courtyard of this ancient fortress now house the prefecture and the county council and are open to visitors. Chambéry also has several museums, including the Beaux-Arts, which is worth a visit because of its beautiful collection of Italian paintings.
