Chillon Castle or the Château de Chillon on Lake Geneva was a medieval Roman outpost, monitoring access to the Alpine passes over hundreds of years. Later it became home to one of the oldest royal families, the House of Savoy. The House of Savoy ruled Italy from 1003 to the end of World War II. During his exile from Great Britain Lord Byron wrote a poem about the castle chronicling the imprisonment of a Genevois monk in the 16th century. On your visit to the castle on the Majestic Switzerland tour, find where Byron famously carved his name in the castle’s dungeon.[caption id="attachment_846476" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Château de Chillon on Lake Geneva[/caption]
