Aosta Valley or Valle d’Aosta is a small alpine town in the northern part of Italy surrounded by French and Swiss borders. It is the smallest and the least populous region of Italy. Valle d’Aosta got its name from the Roman emperor, Augustus who conquered the region from Salassi during 25 BC and established Augusta Prætoria Salassorum (modern-day Aosta). The region is also famous for the Monte Bianco or Mont Blanc which literally means “White Mountain”, which is the highest mountain in the Alps as well as in Europe.
To sum-up, Aosta is a stunning alpine town nestled amongst the snow-capped mountains. It is cute, it is cold but yet warm and a must-see place because it has everything to offer you. Starting from History, Monuments, Museums, Alps, Ski resorts, Churches, National Park (yes, have you heard about Gran Paradiso National Park? It is right here), stunning Lakes, beautiful squares and gorgeous alleys.
