Saumur is mainly an AFV museum, but it has some nice artillery too.
I love the 10.5 cm leFH 40:

Italian 75/18 mod 1935. This is the regimental gun version of the 75/18, you can recognize it from the larger wheels. The mod 1934 version was a mountain gun, it was a pack howtizer, with smaller wheels, and it's somewhat easier to find, even if it never fully replaced the Skoda 75/13:

The one in Forte Bramafan, Bardonecchia (Italy), has different wheels, more similar to the wheels you often see on french 25 mm guns.

I think that gun is on loan from Museo dell'Artiglieria, Torino.

105 mm mod 56 OTO-Melara was the last in a long, glorious lineage of mountain, pack howitzers (12 parts). It was sold to a lot of different armies world-wide:

Nowadays the italian mountain troops use rifled mortars instead, plus rockets for direct fire.

Here is the one from Forte Bramafam, indeed the wheels look more like the one I've seen attached to 25 mm APX guns. I can confirm the 47 mm below is on loan ffrom Museo dell'Artiglieria:
