Mont Blanc area

Courmayeur is a treasure chest that contains fairy-tale alpine landscapes dominated by the magnificence of Mont Blanc, which monitors, with its beauty, the entire valley. The town began its tourist development in the seventeenth century, thanks to the utilization of its sulphurous waters through the construction of a spa. Its great fame came in the following hundred years, when Courmayeur became the starting point for the explorations of the rocky meanders of Mont Blanc.
