  • Day 1 - Exploring Castles and beyond

  • Fènis is certainly the most famous castle in the region and for many, the most beautiful one; few people are aware though that also the village is a pearl to be explored wandering through its alleys. A few minute drive from the castle, you will find a small distillery where you can see the distillation process and taste the liqueurs got from the alpine herbs and accompanied by the St. Marcel ham produced in the annex laboratory

  • Day 2 - Amazing Views

  • Riding on the rotating cable cars up to the Monte Bianco you will feel breathless, not only because of the heights, as you will reach the altitude of 3466 mt., but also because the views are absolutely stunning. The amazing tops of the most famous mountains will appear in front of your eyes: the Mont Blanc, the Pink Mountain, the Matterhorn and the Grand Combin. Once back “on earth”, go exploring the small towns of Courmayeur and St. Pierre where you will visit the Royal Castle of Sarre strictly linked to the Kings of Italy

  • Day 3 - Aosta, a small capital

  • Aosta is a pleasant surprise, it can be visited in one day or even less but I recommend to spend a full day to discover its cozy cafés and diners offering Valpellinentze and tiles, carbonada and civet. Are you wondering what they are? You only need to sit at a table to find out! Aosta is a town rich in art treasures, witnessing its ancient history going back to the Roman period when it was called Augusta Praetoria. You can reach the nearby village of Valpelline to buy the Fontina cheese in the place where the producers keep it to season and to get its unique sweet taste
