Aosta Valley is the smallest region in Italy and is in the north-west, between France and Switzerland. Its core is its majestic peaks in this mainly mountainous region, centred around the highest parts of the Alps; Cervino, Mount Rosa, Gran Paradiso and the king of them all, Mont Blanc, which at 4810 metres is the highest mountain in Europe: it is the roof of the old Continent. Those who are not familiar with mountaineering can use the comfor yet spectacular cable car, which can be caught a few kilometres from Courmayeur, one of the most important ski resorts in the world. In this setting of stately mountains and different types of valley, sits the oldest National Park, the Gran Paradiso, where it is still possible to see animals in their natural habitat - ibex, chamois, eagles and marmots live in vegetation which changes according to the surrounding environment. Historically, the Aosta Valley has been viewed as land of contact and fusion between Italy and France, which is reflected in its official bilingualism and its special autonomous region status. The great modern tunnels of Gran San Bernardo and, even more so, Mont Blanc, an engineering masterpiece that ends up in France, highlight even more clearly this aspect of intersection between Italy and the rest of Europe. The only province of the region is Aosta (regional capital).
