Enjoy a relaxed mountain walking holiday in the northwest of Italy, in the historic Aosta Valley, sandwiched between France to the west and Switzerland to the east. Walk along the best stages of the Cammino Balteo on a trip packed with Italian culture, food, and Roman history. Admire traditional mountain chalets decorated with vividly coloured geraniums, and towering mountain peaks, as you explore on the peaceful walking trails. Old trade routes lead through a pristine natural landscape peppered with castles, palaces, and churches, all surrounded by the highest and most famous mountains and vineyards in the Alps. Start at the Roman bridge Pont Saint-Martin, an important marker on the famous Via Francigena pilgrimage path and the gateway to the Aosta Valley. The panoramic view of Mont Blanc makes for the ideal end. The cuisine from the neighbouring countries blends with traditional hearty mountain foods, so you can tuck into the many delicious cheeses, wine, pasta, and sausages along the way.
