Parco Nazionale Gran Paradiso, Aosta
(4.9/5 based on 440 reviews on the web)
Dramatic panoramic vistas and plentiful wildlife await you at Parco Nazionale Gran Paradiso, an Italian national park set in a stunning Alpine landscape. Established in 1922 (making it Italy's first national park), the land is home to 4,000 alpine ibex, an endangered species that the park has been charged with protecting. Lush green rolling hills and valleys intertwine between the snow-capped peaks rising overhead. Weasels, hares, badgers, wolves, and chamois join the ibex here. You can explore easy hiking trails through the natural landscape, or it can also be traveled by bike. Use our Aosta vacation trip planner to visit Parco Nazionale Gran Paradiso on your trip to Aosta, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
