So much history among the Alps, in the smallest region of Italy

With a surface area of just 3,266 km² — 1% of Italian soil — Aosta Valley is the smallest region in the bel paese. Shaped by ancient glaciers and encircled by some of Europe's highest mountains, Aosta Valley is also a typically alpine region, divided into 7 tourist areas, each with very particular features.

Five centuries of Roman civilisation have left impressive signs in the Aosta Valley and, additionally, in the Middle Ages many castles, towers and strongholds were built, becoming a distinctive element in the region landscape.
