Some of the most breathtaking views in Italy are found in the Aosta Valley, a paradise for lovers of mountains and nature, where among the perennial snow you can ski all year round.
In fact some of the most impressive peaks stand out here; the "Giants of the Alps," such as Mont Blanc (4,810 meters), now also reachable by cable car, the pyramid of the Matterhorn (4,478 m), Monte Rosa(4,634 meters), and Gran Paradiso (4,061 meters).
Between peaks and valleys, you are immersed in natural sites protected by the Gran Paradiso National Park and the Mont Avic Regional Park, and relaxing in spas.
Divided into six tourist areas, the Aosta Valley offers many opportunities for experiences, both in the unique scenery of the mountains and beyond. On the Great St. Bernard Pass during the summer you can retrace the ancient pilgrim route along the Via Francigena.
Aosta preserves important vestiges of its Roman past, like the Arch of Augustus and Porta Pretoria. Its surroundings are dotted with historical relics and many nature reserves. Its cuisine reflects the authenticity of the place and offers several local products, all produced right in the area.
