Itinerary 3: Wines of Monte Emilius

You will discover that, from the time of the Romans, the vineyard has been the daughter of the mountain.

Wines of Monte Emilius

Located at the crossroads of the most important Alpine hills of the Gran and Piccolo San Bernardo, in a magnificent Alpine basin crowned by Mount Emilius, the city of Aosta has long been an important strategic travel hub. Aptly named the Rome of the Alps, it inherited from the Roman colony Augusta Praetoria the orthogonal urban installation still quite visible today in the historic center.

But Aosta also hosts important medieval ruins, churches and residences of the feudal lords that for centuries fought for the dominion over the valley.

All around the city, the vineyards and the mountains are truly close enough to touch and this route guarantees tourists and fans of flavor a fascinating itinerary through local traditions, natural beauties, and the historic and archeological signs of the capital of the Valle d'Aosta.
