Aosta Italy

Aosta Italy

Aosta, the capital of the Valle d’Aosta region in northwestern Italy, is located near the Grab Paradiso National Park, which has alpine botanical garden, trails and plenty of wildlife. This old Roman town at 583 meters above sea level is surrounded by magnificent mountains, including the Grand Combin and the Mont Vélan to the north, Emilius and the Becca di Nona to the south, and the Testa del Rutor to the west. Ski resort of Pila, one of the many in the area, is a 20-minute gondola-ride from Aosta town. Rich in monuments from pre-historical, Roman and medieval times, Aosta also hosts a thousand-year-old Sant‘Orsa Craft Fair, held each January showcasing artefacts in wood, soapstone, wrought iron, lace and woolen fabrics, as well as farming equipment, furniture, household utensils and sculptures.
