Though Valle d'Aosta is Italy's smallest region, it contains the highest peaks of the Alps, including the "roof of the old continent," Mont Blanc. This area is an outdoor adventure lover's dream vacation, with myriad climbing and hiking opportunities above the valley floor.

Many visitors include attractions such as Roman monuments, medieval castles, and Romanesque churches on their itinerary. Since ancient times, Valle d'Aosta has been an important crossroads of the Western Alps.
