Relaxed towns

Generally, the summer is more relaxed than during the ski season, but this doesn't mean there are a lack of activities to keep you entertained. Summer's the ideal time to get outdoors and go walking, enjoying all that nature has to offer. You'll find that the bars and restaurants have a great vibe and serve fantastic local food and wine. There are usually some concerts and events in August, so if you want a mix of the outdoors and nightlife, this is the time to go.

Challenging alpine walking trails 

Walking in the incredible Alps will be the adventure of a lifetime. Looking for a challenging hike? Check out some of the trickier trails the Aosta Valley has to offer. The Alps have lots of rocky, high-altitude terrain so you'll need some proper walking boots. There's a great mix of meadow, rocky and water-side routes that you can go on, discovering something new at every turn!

Tasty traditional food

The Aosta Valley is full of fantastic food - the dishes are hearty and rich. It's location in the North-West of Italy means it has an incredible mix of mountain style and traditional Italian food. The region's known for it's salami and meat and you can't miss the cheese. Fontina's the most famous cheese from the valley - you have to try the famous dish, Fonduta Valdostana - it's heavenly! Finally, don't forget to try the local wines, they're known for their high quality and complex flavours. 

A rich history

Did you know that the Aosta Valley has Roman roots? The Emperor Augustus named the town Augustus Praetoria after himself - today we call it Aosta, the capital of the area. After many years of changing ownership, in 1927 Aosta became part of the province of Torino and in 1945 the autonomous region of the Val D'Aosta was created. There are still traces of the Roman past scattered throughout the Aosta Valley, most of which are in Aosta itself.
