Valle d'Aosta: Ski and Leisure Time

valle daosta

An active, artful and tasty autumn in the Italian Alps

Sports and nature lovers should consider a visit to the Aosta Valley this time of year. The Region offers an array of surprises and alternatives to conventional tourism and, of course, some parts, like Breuil Cervinia, have already re-opened the slopes for ski season. (Note that the international slope of the Valtournenche is open only the weekend of October 26-27, while every resort and ski hub in the area is open everyday from November 1st, 2013 to May 4th, 2014.) 
But it doesn’t end there. Thanks to the wide variety of arboreal species in Valle d'Aosta, particularly of broad-leaved and conifer trees, visitors can take walks and marvel at the breathtaking colors of the Valley’s fall foliage. 
And gourmands will appreciate the sagre and other gastronomic celebrations, specifically those that regard honey and chestnuts (in Châtillon, or if you happen to be in Lillianes, you can hit up the Aosta Chocolate Fest). 

Art and photography enthusiasts will not want to miss a few exciting dates in the Valley, either: for instance, until May 2014, the Saint-Bénin Center of Aosta hosts an exhibit of the work of British Pop artist Joe Tilson. 
Meanwhile, Italy’s first collection of Magnum photographs is on view in Forte di Bard until November 10th, taking visitors on a 70-year-long journey by way of the unforgettable Magnum Contact Sheets.
Finally, the Fort is also set to be the location for for the most important photojournalism competition on the globe, i.e. World Press Photo, December 7th, 2013 – to January 6th, 2014.
