The Mont Blanc Valley.
A view of exceptional beauty, in front of the highest European mountain, the Mount Blanc Valley is a natural depression at the north west of the Aosta Valley, which is the smallest country where the highest European peaks are grouped.
Explorations and occupations have succeeded one another since the middle of the 18th century; climbers from every place of the world have arrived and come to Courmayeur to measure themselves with the Mount Blanc massif, which is among the most fasinating anes. The Alpine Guides' Society of Courmayeur has been the protagonist of enterprises which have been written in the story of the alpinism.
Hot springs, already known by Roman people for their salutary properties, have given rise to the tourist development of the Mont Blanc Valley: the thermal source of Pré-Saint-Didier has arsenicferruginous waters at a constant temperature of 36 degree, which have therapeutic properties. Nowadays there is a modern thermal establishment that attracts many people.
The Mont Blanc Valley is a multi-coloured universe for traditions and folklore: it is a country where everything should be discovered. The natural estate is represented by a variety of landscapes and colours in every season.; there is the possibility to practise many sports.
Courmayeur, at an altitude of 1224 mt among firs and larchs is surrounded by mountains and glaciers which make it extraordinary; it is a modern alpine town which praises centuries of history and a selebrity that hade made it known all around the world; in Courmayeur we find tourist accomodation facilities at an international level.
