Visit Aosta Valley

125.7 thousand

The Aosta Valley, which lies in the northwest corner of Italy, is a picturesque region that offers majestic mountain views, quaint villages and plenty of outdoor activities. Home to some of the highest peaks in Europe, including Mont Blanc and Monte Rosa, the region is popular with hikers and climbers alike.

For those looking for a more leisurely experience, there are plenty of charming towns to explore such as Aosta (the regional capital) with its Roman-era walls and cobblestone streets; or Courmayeur - a beautiful ski resort nestled below Mont Blanc.

History buffs will appreciate its rich history too - in ancient times it was part of the Kingdom of Burgundy before it became part of modern Italy in 1861. During World War II many important battles were fought here between Italian partisans and German forces.

The area is also known for its delightful local cuisine that combines traditional dishes from Piedmont with specialties from nearby France such as fondue or raclette. All these reasons make Aosta Valley an ideal destination for visitors wanting to explore an authentic part of Italy's culture and landscape.
