Get around



The Valley is an outdoor adventure lovers dream in the summer months it offers a wide range of climbing and hiking options above the valley floor. In the winter the valley is at the heart of the Italian skiing experience with such famous areas as Courmayer located here.

Thermal Baths A great year-round activity in Valle d'Aosta is a visit to the Thermes de Pre Sant-Didier. Incredibly relaxing in a beautiful setting overlooking Monte Bianco. See website for current prices and hours. Open late on Friday and Saturday evenings for nights under the stars. [1]

Summer Activities

Rock climbing:- There are crags bolted for sport climbing all over the area between them offering climbs at all grades, and at lengths from 10m to over 350m. The best guide is "Mani Nude: Arrampicata sportiva in Valle d'Aosta" by Massimo Bal and Patrick Raspo. Publisher: Martini Multimedia Editore. ISBN: 88-901125-0-6. Published in 2003. New crags and sectors have been developed since the book came out, and some of the directions for reaching the climbs are not good enough, so check on websites such as [2].





  • Gamay - the local variety of red wine grown on the terraced vineyards visible along the steep rock walls of the valley. It is a light red and doesn't age well so its best to be enjoyed on site in full view of the land it was grown on.
