Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Valle d'Aosta  /  Courmayeur
Courmayeur is a town and comune in northern Italy, in the autonomous region of Aosta Valley. At an elevation of 1224m above sea level, it is located at the foot of Mont Blanc, at 4810m the highest point in the Alps and western Europe (see Seven Summits), in the Graian Alps range and crossed by the Dora Baltea. Courmayeur shares administration of Mont Blanc with its neighboring commune of Saint-Gervais-les-Bains in France, and is consequently able to claim the title of highest commune in Italy. Courmayeur also shares access to the famous glacial ski run of the Vallee Blanche with another French town, Chamonix, which sits at the other side of the peak known as the Aiguille du Midi.HistoryThe ancient Curia Maior was always a popular tourist destination, thanks to its spa, and the Mont-Blanc landscapes. During World War II, under the fascist regime "italianist" rule, was rebaptized "Cormaiore".TourismCourmayeur’s picturesque mountain scenery and healthy mountain air make it an attractive year-round destination. It is one of Europe’s most famous ski locations, and contains the Giardino Botanico Alpino Saussurea, which describes itself as Europe's highest botanical garden. In the summer months Courmayeur is a popular destination for hikers.
