Eighth Annual Summer Interdisciplinary Conference
A very useful resource is the website: http://www.regione.vda.it/turismo/default_e.asp
One can also try: http://www.regione.vda.it/default_f.asp
I invite you to explore this extensive website at leisure. Eventually we may add more specific information here, but for now the websites above give more than sufficient information about all aspects of the region and activities.
For some pictures about scenes available in the various Aosta side valleys, see the Travel Page on this website.
For the adventure and leisure minded, I note that the available activities, either self guided or available as tours with guides, include:
Cable Car tour up and over the Mt Blanc Massif to Chamonix :
Let me note that the website lists and describes (with maps) approximately 338 walks (not counting the many multiday treks possible).
Bicycling and Mountain Biking
Hot Air Ballooning
For rock climbing, let me refer the reader to: http://www.worldtopo.com/masreg.php?regn=238 This site describes about 50 or so rock climbing areas in the Aosta Valley.
For culture, the region is replete with old castles, museums, and historical sites. There are also many events. The website lists many such possibilities.
