Exploring Italy – Valle d’Aosta


Location: Valle d’Aosta region in Italy!

Easy look up: Skyway Monte Bianco


History & Info


 These views became an idea in the 1930’s but did not become a full reality until 2015! Count Dino Lora Totino decided he wanted a cableway that could connect Italy to France and vice versa. According to the montebianco.com site, he had a love for the mountains and that is what brought him to Valle d’Aosta.
The journey takes you over the mountains into France starting at the Courmayeur/ The valley station where you can purchase tickets, find a café if you would like to eat before you go up, etc. Prices start at around 52 EUR a person for the full trip or 28 EUR for a shorter one.

If you happen to bring your dog all the way to Europe or if you’re reading from there, it’s 7 EUR!

I wont judge if you do.

The fun bench photo was taken at Punta Helbronner / The sky, outside of Bistrot Panoramic after we put some food in our stomachs. The Bistrot Panoramic and the Mountain bar are both open during these tough 2020 times! There are many other activities as well listed on their website. This includes an Alpine movie hall, Art, Botanical Garden, and more.



What brought me there:

I studied abroad in 2017 and it was part of our studies / fun excursions! I remember being a little nervous about the height going up, but nothing is better than the feeling of being level with the clouds. Once we were up at the top of the mountains and could walk around, we all received the famous data rates apply text saying, “Welcome to France”. Honestly being a newbie in traveling, the text and the views put me on Cloud 9. Literally.

The best part is if you are somehow traveling, it’s open! Ready to show you the sky.
