Aosta and area without a car - worth it?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip for summer 2013. Total about a month, first two weeks in France, then about five days on Italian Riviera between Genova and Portovenere. After that is my question. I was thinking a few days around Aosta and then up to Lake Geneva but so far my research is showing that it's not very easy to get from Aosta up into Switzerland. And I'm also wondering how easy it is to get around the area itself. The town of Aosta sounds sort of interesting, and there's a castle nearby that looks intriguing (Castello Di Fenis ), and I'd want to go to Breuil-Cervinia & the Matterhorn. It all looks possible by public transport, but not sure if the whole area would be better to wait till a trip when I'd have a car. It just seemed that if I were going from Genoa to Lausanne that Aosta is right smack in between them. But maybe it's not unless you have a car.

So - is the area 'worth' it? Am I missing something in terms of public trans (I've been checking train routes on the trenitalia site and the sbb site)? If I did go, any suggestions for number of days or specific itinerary.
