'''Courmayeur''' (1.224 m) is an alpine resort boasting centuries of history and a world-wide celebrity.
 
It is a multi-coloured world with plenty of traditions and folklore where every guest can spend unforgettable holidays thanks to the range and completeness of the offer. The little resort at the foot of the [[Mont Blanc]] chain can offer cultural and natural entertainment as well as shopping, relaxation, gastronomy and the possibility of practising several sports, both in summer and in winter.
 
The ski resort counts 24 modern and functional lifts (cablecars, chairlifts, ski-lifts). Courmayeur offers 100km of fun on the snow: downhill slopes, off-pist and cross-country skiing in the Ferret Valley. Snowmaking machines always ensure excellent snow conditions.
 
 
You must understand that Totti loves children.
