Summer in Valle d’Aosta...
It appears in the immense generosity of its aesthetic gifts and taste. It is a time of extensive blossoming on medium and high range mountains, particularly enjoyed by the varieties found in the botanical gardens ; it is a time when all the high routes are passable, the two trekking routes par excellence in Valle d’Aosta: emotional, panoramic adventures, linked by branching to the "minor" routes and fitted with excellent hospitality structures. The summer is so full of life as it is of sunshine that, with its yellow colouring warmer than that found in springtime (inspiring liveliness and lightweightness), it shines under an intense, powerful, and purifying blue sky, that touches the ground with "drops", on certain flowers
at a high altitude, contrasted, by complement, by the bright redandpurple varieties. Another recurring colour is forest green, creator of harmony, peace and renewal, favouring awareness and pleasantly dotted with small spontaneous fruits. The light that extends into the evening, the pleasant warmth and the well equipped retreats make it easier to go on excursions and practice sports. Apart from trekking, that we have already mentioned, we can list: climbing, mountain biking, horse riding, golf, fishing, rafting, etc... skiing, however, doesn't give up and survives in its summer version at Cervinia. The Valle d'Aosta's summer of events seems to be on the same frequency
as the different emotional and intellectual sensitivities of the tourists. Concerts are organised (including the "Musical Summer” at Gressoney and the International Festival of Organ Concerts ), film festivals (like the Cervino Film Festival or the Cinema Routes ), craft fairs, the best one being: the Foire d’été (a mirror copy of the more well known winter version), entertainment events, food festivals and antique markets (in particular, Verres and Morgex).
