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. Valle d'Aosta is known around the world for its major climbing routes, many of which have made mountaineering history. In the winter, the valley is at the heart of the Italian skiing experience with several top-notch ski resorts. 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. Today, it's linked with France and Switzerland through the Mont Blanc Tunnel and the Little and Big Saint Bernard passes.
