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.

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.
