You could take beautiful walks or bike rides along easy paths that lead to mountain huts where you can spend the night and stargaze between Val Ferret and Val Veny. Another one is the path across Monte Bianco with the very modern and panoramic Skyway. You can get a real taste of this region's flavours in the many restaurants situated in the valleys. Walking in Via Roma you can find the shops of many famous brands or you could go to the ‘Museo transfrontaliero delle Guide Alpine’ for some history.

FORTE DI BARD
It used to be a wall of a medieval castle and it now has a museum that shows the history of the Alps and what men did to transform it into what it is today. It also introduces young adults to mountain climbing.
Built in 2003, it offers guided tours to observe and study the solar system during the day and stars in the night. It is exciting to see how shooting starts don’t only occur during the night of San Lorenzo as we believe in Italy! Since 2008 they also have a planetary.

SLOPES IN WINTER
There are slops for any winter activity with magical sights that allow everyone to take part, even the youngest
Not far we can find the city of Aosta that gets its name from Augusta Pretoria. The roman walls are the sign you are entering the centre of the city where you can find Porta Pretoria and the Arc of Augusto, Roman Theatre and the Church of S.Orso, the Cathedral and Chanoux Square. It is located in the middle of the valley and it is worth making a trip to.
There are many castles in the region, one we would recommend is the one of Fenis, which is still furnished. Other famous castles are the one of Sarre and the one of Aymavillers which has just been refurbished or the one of Issogne... it would certainly take more than a day to visit them all
