Italian Alps - Walking at the Foot of the Matterhorn

  • Discover quaint little villages with slate-roofed stone houses and geranium-filled balconies
  • Spectacular mountain panorama with probably the most impressive peak: the Matterhorn
  • Explore the tranquil Aosta Valley at the foot of the Monte Rosa massif
  • Try mouthwatering cuisine including fontina cheese, saouseusse sausage, and Génépy herbal liqueur
  • Visit neighbouring Switzerland and take a ride on the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise at 3,883m
Immerse yourself in the historic Aosta Valley, in the northwest of Italy, sandwiched between France to the west and Switzerland to the east. It’s the chance to discover this lesser-known part of the Alps, where you can sample Italian cuisine and culture, stay in cosy small hotels and guest houses in rustic mountain villages, and enjoy walking in the mountains without the crowds. This may be the smallest region in Italy, but it still has a lot to offer including seeing the famed Matterhorn and Monte Rosa massif. Experience the snow-capped peaks, blooming alpine meadows, larch forests, and rushing streams. You can ascend to Glacier Paradise on the world's highest three-cable gondola. Take in the view over the jagged peaks of this impressive alpine terrain as you reach the summit of Monte Zerbion.
