Piedmont and Valle d'Aosta Travel Guide

Breuil-Cervinia-The Matterhorn

Sitting in a huge natural basin at the foot of the Matterhorn, this town, once a high Alpine pasture, grew to become one of Europe’s most famous ski areas after 1934, when a road connecting it to the Valle d’Aosta was completed. It bustles in the winter and has become a popular spot for hikers in the summer, but it's sleepy for much of the rest of the year.
