Aosta Valley in the northwest on border with France and Switzerland, is the smallest region in Italy. The predominantly mountains region is dominated by majestic peaks, the highest peaks in the Alps: Cervino, Monte Rosa, Grand Paradiso and the king of them all, Mont Blanc.
At 4810 m, it is the highest mountain in Europe and the roof of the old continent.
Between these mighty mountains and the colorful valleys is the oldest National Park in Italy, the Grand Paradiso, founded in 1922, where it is still possible to see animals in their natural habitat – ibex, chamois, eagles and marmots.
Historically, the Aosta Valley is characterized by close contact and the occasional unification with France, which is also reflected in the country`s official bilingualism and status as an autonomous region.
