Valle d'Aosta Delights

4 days / 3 nights in Aosta or surrounding area

  • Impressive peaks and breathtaking landscapes appear in our minds when we think of the Alps; this itinerary through the Aosta Valley will introduce you to this and much more: the Arnad Lard and the “Genepi” distillate, the top of Mont Blanc and the fairy-tale castles, St. Marcel's Ham and the "highest" wine in Europe

  • Day 1 – A tasty welcome

  • The Arnad Lard P.D.O. is a tasty and fragrant cured meat seasoned with salt, spices and mountain aromas that make it a unique product; you will visit the laboratory before savouring it at a local producer’s. Your next stop is Issogne Castle to relive life in a castle through the furnishings, frescoes and decorations. The overnight stay is in a characteristic B&B in Aosta or surroundings

  • Day 2 – Fénis Castle and much more

  • Majestic and elegant, Fénis Castle is a true medieval jewel, considered by many the most beautiful castle of the region. Close to it, you will find a small distillery that produces liqueurs and spirits, including the Genepi, and the adjoining ham factory where you will taste the unmistakable St. Marcel raw ham. Do not hold yourself back and continue the saga of the Aosta Valley flavours at lunch, then spend a lovely afternoon exploring Aosta with a local guide

  • Day 3 – High-flying emotions

  • Discover all the magic of the Alps by climbing the Mont Blanc by the rotating Skyway cabins: the view is impressive and will leave you breathless ... and not just for the altitude! Go back down to Courmayeur, which is definitely worth a walk, and continue to Aosta. Along the way, make a stop in Morgex to buy a bottle of the "highest" wine in Europe and visit to the Royal Castle of Sarre

  • Day 4 – Fontina Passion

  • Fontina and fondue are synonyms of Valle d’Aosta and the consortium of the fontina cheese producers is a must-visit place; a piece of fontina cheese is also a delightful souvenir of your journey to take back home
