With Italy being so close to where we are staying taking a trip to Italy is must! You will get to explore the beautiful sites of Courmayeur on the Italian side of Mont Blanc.
Going through the tunnel this is approximately 45 minutes from Chamonix centre south. As you reach the Italian border you will soon see how different but spectacular this side of the mountain is. You are enclosed in all directions from spectacular views , mountains, and alpine forests. Here you will also see different architecture and buildings which makes amazing ski village a must visit. If you like shopping, and ice cream then you wont be disappointed.
Courmayeur as you might expect is fairly hilly with a mixture of old and new style building and roads. You have cobbled roads in the main village with churches, shops, restaurants and amazing scenery all road. A short 10 min run or 25 min walk you can find some trials and really see different sites and breath taking views. You will see the make up although not far as the crow flies is so different to the French side of Chamonix.
Our experience running and walking around was just brilliant and to finish off it would be only right to finish with one if the best pizza’s you will ever taste (Good value too)
