Monte-Rosa is, definitely, the most popular of them. Apart from high-quality ski slopes tourists can visit 55 restaurants, 26 bars and a night club.

The local hippodrome has its own horse riding school where you can take first lessons and even make a ride.
Tourists, who cannot imagine themselves without shopping, may prefer La Thuille district, which is known as the center of shops and trading centers in Aosta. When you get tired of shopping, you can have rest in one of multiple cozy pizzeria or cafés. Weekends are a traditional time for parties and shows in night clubs. Courmayer district is famous not only by the best sports areas in whole town, but also by its historical sights. Here you can see Malqueen tower and an ancient chapel. The square around them is often used for various festivals and celebrations. Finally, Cervinia district differs from all other parts of the town by a huge skating-rink, which is located here.

Your rest in Aosta can be very different as this place is really full of entertainments that would fit any taste. If you want to try something new after your walks in wonderful snowy mountains, add some cultural experience by visiting the Archeological Museum or more to an ancient small town named Pila, which is located in Aosta suburbs. Here are located several medieval castles, churches and other interesting sights.
Among the historical symbols of the city, Florence Cathedral deserves special attention. During an archaeological research it was found that the very first prayer house in this place was built as early as the 4th century BC. In the 11th century a beautiful cathedral appeared in its place, built in the Romanesque style, however its present form was acquired only during 15th – 16th century. A visit to the cathedral is comparable with a visit to an art museum, it preserved the unique frescos of the 11th century, as well as the beautiful mosaics, which were laid out in the 12th - 14th centuries.
