One of the most beautiful sensations you can experience in this round, especially in the warm months, is that of the perfumes and intense aromas of Valpelline nature. A relaxing and fun route, with many pleasant stops among characteristic villages and shining views, ending at Place Moulin Lake, the largest watershed in Aosta Valley.

AOSTA CITY
Before heading North and entering Valpelline, allow yourself a few hours to visit Aosta. You will discover that it is truly worth the effort and you will head out again with only one thought: To come back soon! Park your bike at the feet of the Arch of Augusto, symbolic monument of Aosta created in 25 B.C., the year the city was founded. A few paces in the historical center and you arrive at the Porta Praetoria, the Roman Theater, the Forum… And then the Cathedral, the Church of Sant’Orso, the San Lorenzo basilica, Piazza Chanoux. But that’s not all. You can immerse yourself in the ancient streets of the city, shop the elegant stores in the pedestrian zone, enjoy the pleasure of a typical restaurant and visit the exclusive local artisan shops. Enough for now, however. Valpelline awaits!

VALPELLINE
You’ll really enjoy the unique atmosphere of this valley. Quiet and little-travelled roads, a captivating setting, dominated by the imposing peaks that mark the border with Switzerland, thick forests and inviting meadows, ideal for a nice stop. The gastronomic culture is also very lively, with Seuppa Valpellenentze and, naturally, Fontina cheese, to which the large festival held annually in mid-August at Oyace is dedicated.

THE FONTINA CO-OPERATIVE
A whole wheel of cheese, in the hard luggage, maybe not. But a chunk, yes. A nice piece of Fontina to enjoy at night or perhaps to melt down for a substantial fondue. And then you will take a small detour, shortly after the Municipality of Valpelline, to the Fontina Milk Products Co-operative. A consortium of around 400 operators, who produce 400,000 forms of Fontina every year.
