General information
Aosta Valley is the smallest Italian region. Located in North-Western Italy, it borders with Switzerland and France, apart from the Italian region Piedmont. It is a mountainous region and it is surrounded by the highest peaks of Italy, all over 4.000 mt: il Mont Blanc, the highest peak of Europe, Monte Rosa, Matterhorn and Gran Paradiso. The river Dora Baltea crosses the region and following the natural conformation of the land it runs in the main valley, from which minor valleys depart with their tributaries. Here you may also find many beautiful alpine lakes. In the southern part of the region, the Gran Paradiso National Park is the first Italian national park to be destined since 1922 to the conservation of plants and animals risking extinction. The Mont Avic Natural Park is Aosta Valley’s first regional park. The climate varies: along the valley floor it is typical continental while on top of the mountains summer is typically alpine with cool temperatures, and winter is extremely cold.
