Travel to Italy with Italia Mia and Explore the Medieval Castles of the Aosta Valley
The Aosta Valley is a breathtaking mountainous region of Northern Italy, nestled tightly in the shadows of Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. However, this part of Italy is more than just scenery. In fact, with its rich, colourful Roman origins, the Aosta Valley is often referred to as the ‘Rome of the Alps’. You can explore this Roman history, as well as the region’s unique Celtic background, on an Italian travel tour to the Aosta Valley, which takes in the sights, the tastes, and the culture of this little-visited destination.
With only a single road leading into the valley, this part of Italy is famously secluded, hidden, and not particularly accessible in terms of mass travel. This means that small, private guided tours of Italy are perhaps the easiest and most enjoyable way to explore the Aosta Valley. Your Italian travel experts will escort you to the region’s most incredible medieval castles, and won’t let you miss out on sampling local fontina cheese, cured motzetta, and a glass of Blanc de Morgex; a dry, delicate, and herby white wine.
Walk Part of the Famous Francigena Way with the Italy Travel Specialists
As one of the most natural regions of Italy, the Aosta Valley is a must-see destination for anyone who loves to explore the great outdoors. The Gran Paradiso National Park is a true highlight, and the famous Francigena Way — a 1700 km long pilgrim route — passes through the valley on its way from the beautiful village of Etroubles to the Nus wine growing region. If you’re looking for extended Italy holidays from Australia with a difference, this 50-day walking holiday through the Aosta Valley won’t disappoint.
