Each season is the right one to visit the places that hosted the sets of the Marvel blockbuster movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron. In March 2014, the shooting involved the Bard Fortress, the municipalities of Bard, Donnas, Pont-Saint-Martin, Verrès, Hône and Aosta.
To guide Marvel superhero fans to discover the places where some of the scenes from the blockbuster movie were filmed, signage totems were placed with the effigy of the protagonists. Each totem contains the complete list of locations and a QR Code that allows access to some special video content.

WHAT TO SEE
To discover the historic centers of the Aosta Valley municipalities that have been transformed into the imaginary city of Eastern Europe, Sokovia. In Bard you can enter the majestic Fort that was chosen as the site of the Hydra, a bitter enemy of Shield, a place where Baron Von Strucker could count on the collaboration of twins from the super powers Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. The castle of the bad guys where Ultron develops his plan to destroy the planet. The shooting involved above all the pedestrian street that climbs on the north side of the fortress.
There are many attractions in the other locations: in Donnas you can retrace the Gallie Roman Road carved into the rock dominated by the characteristic arch and the medieval Borgo which preserves buildings from the 16th and 17th centuries.
In Pont-Saint-Martin the Roman bridge over the Lys river, which dominates the city center, is worth a stop. In Verrès the splendid medieval village is dominated by the Collegiate Church of Saint-Gilles, from which the actor Jeremy Renner appears in the film.
The railway tunnel that can be seen at the beginning of the film is visible from Via Stazione to Hône and passes under the Bard Fortress. The Roman remains that appear in many combat scenes in Sokovia are the Roman walls of the City of Aosta.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron sets are waiting for you in the Aosta Valley.
