Holiday in Aosta Valley
Aosta Valley is located in the northwestern corner of Italy, and Aosta, the capital of the region, is situated more than 500 meters above sea level, which makes it the 6th highest provincial capital in Italy based on altitude. From Malpensa Airport in Milano, the drive to Aosta Valley takes less than two hours, and just 1½ hours from the center of Torino. The drive is just 45 minutes from Aosta and up towards the French/Italian Mont Blanc/Monte Bianco.
While it is the fantastic nature that really impresses in Aosta Valley, the city also has a beautiful history, dating back to Roman times.
Aosta is home to many exciting Roman ruins, and the town itself is surrounded by a Roman city wall. Anfiteatro Romano di Aosta is the city’s Roman amphitheater and is located beautifully in the north western part of the city.
Aosta Valley does not have large, noisy and chaotic cities, and the stress of big city life is far removed from here. The capital of the region, which is fittingly named Aosta, is home to a modest 35,000 inhabitants. The city has plenty to offer though, as it was an important location during Roman times, and has many Roman ruins to explore, enclosed by the near-intact city wall.
Aosta Valley is filled with some of the tallest mountains in all of Italy. As mentioned earlier, this is where Monte Bianco dominates the western part of Aosta Valley, at 4,810 meters above sevel, and has an attractive year-round vacation spot called Courmayeur.
Monte Cervino – Matterhorn, has a characteristic triangle shaped peak that you can spot from far away, and the mountain towers an impressive 4,478 meters above the sea level.
Mountains reaching for the skies and long, beautiful and breathtaking valleys that offer peace of mind are just a few of the things Aosta has to offer.
