Aosta Valley (IT)

In the far north-west of Italy, bordering France and Switzerland, lies the Aosta Valley, a mixture of fascinating mountains and still wild valleys. An essential mountaineering mecca since its beginnings, the south side of Monte-Bianco also has something to delight “less mountaineers”, with countless possibilities for walks, mountain biking or skiing, as well as ski areas on track and off-piste among the most famous in Europe. Its cultural heritage is not on the margins either, thanks to its many remains and castles from Roman and medieval times.

Aosta, Courmayeur and Cogne are inevitably the most frequented destinations in the Valley. You will find stone everywhere: on the roofs, on the facades, in the alleys … And of course, in order not to fail Italy’s reputation, you can taste delicious garnished aperitifs and typical dishes with the knowledge – make that we know of our tricolor neighbors. Its road access is easy from Switzerland and France, thanks to the Mont-Blanc and Grand-St-Bernard tunnels and the Col du Petit St-Bernard. Various international airports can be reached quickly, including Turin, Milan and Geneva.
