THE town

Temperate winters, fresh, clear summers, a dry climate and a a wonderful sunny location have made Saint-Vincent “the Alpine Riviera”.
Surrounded by an exceptionally beautiful countryside, enriched by its Thermal Spas and by its famous Casino, with its full calendar of sports and cultural events, Saint-Vincent is a complete touristic facility, which is proud to offer its Guests comfort, wellbeing, nature, sport, culture and entertainment.

Saint-Vincent is a town renowned for hosting famous celebrities and champion football teams, for its exquisite pastries and the sacred mountain towering behind – Monte Zerbion, a natural panoramic viewpoint overlooking the colossal rock giants of Europe. Saint-Vincent is the ideal departure point for exploring the central Aosta Valley, a land of rare beauty where the gaze is enraptured by the sight of bold manor houses and beguiling strongholds, where towers are scattered as liberally as legends.


In a hillside, in a punch bowl sheltered from the wind, Saint-Vincent (575 m) presents important historical remains. There are the imposing ruins of the Roman bridge, a bearing wall, and  Roman traces in the basement of the church of San Vincenzo. Crossed by the Via Francigena or Romea, Saint-Vincent was a resting and refreshing point for  numerous armies, traders and pilgrims during the Middle Ages. In more recent times, since the 17th century, the town became an important destination for writers, artists and men of culture, who found the right inspiration there, thanks to the surrounding natural beauties.


At Carnival time children become all important in Saint-Vincent: a child Mayor together with an “ad hoc” Council and Aldermen, symbolically assume the demanding task of “running” the town.

Lively and elegant, always on the move, incredibly, Torino is a city immersed in greenery, with over 300 km of tree-lined avenues and countless parks: gently leaning against the hills and embraced by the Po, it owes much of its charm to its enchanting geographical position at the foot of the western Alps.

Torino is an aristocratic “old lady” more than two thousand years old, whose vestiges are still visible in “her” main monuments, streets, squares and underground… an “old lady” reborn out of “her” own ashes, more dynamic, innovative and modern than ever but always proud of “her” great past.
The first capital of Italia invites you to discover its ancient and modern history, the Royal Residences, the palaces and museums, the parks and tree-lined avenues, the river and the mountains, the historic restaurants and cafes, the long arcaded streets and the multiethnic neighborhoods, the great events and the many small pleasures that have always made it unique, in a harmonious balance among the rational Roman urban planning, the moderate splendor of the Piemonte baroque and the originality of modern and contemporary architecture.

Torino must be discovered slowly, step by step, even by walking through streets and squares looking all around you, even upwards, and above all, the city has to be lived. For this reason, there are some things that are absolute “must-dos”, “must-sees” and “must-tastes”

The true star of gastronomy is the White Truffle of Alba, which transforms a steaming risotto or a plate of raw meat into an ecstasy for the palate. The lion’s share is undoubtedly claimed by wine, with 17 DOCG and 42 DOC labels, many of which are produced in the Vineyard Landscapes of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato, a UNESCO world heritage site since 2014.

For many, Mont-Blanc is simply the highest mountain in Europe.
Its 4,810 m certainly confirm its undisputed supremacy. But in reality, Mont-Blanc is far more than this with regard to records, history and nature. Mont-Blanc history is unparalleled and over the years its has been an inert onlooker and the aim and object of many ventures and many challenges. 

The birth of mountaineering (MontBlanc was first climbed by Jacques Balmat (a 24-year old – crystal-digger) and by Michel Gabriel Paccard, (a 29-year old medical officer) and was probably one of the first attempts at climbing these mountains. 

Mont-Blanc can be experience using suitable equipment and an expert guide: feel the snow crunch under the climbing irons and see the play of colours and lights on the snow while proceeding towards the mountain peak (from either the Italian or French side). 

The emotions that can be felt on the roof of Europe, when going up on the cableway are equally suggestive (the “tour du Mont-Blanc”: Courmayeur – Punta Helbronner – Aguilles de Midi – Chamonix) and being able to stop at various levels to admire the view, the Saussurea botanic garden and the crystal exhibition.
