Nestled high in the Italian Alps, this charming town is popular for excellent skiing and snow sports in the winter and gorgeous hiking in the summer.

Breuil-Cervinia is an alpine resort in the Aosta Valley region of northwest Italy. Cervinia lies at 2,006 m (6,581 ft) above sea level, at the foot of the Matterhorn in a valley surrounded by high, glaciated mountains and the sheer rock face of the Jumeaux. It shares a ski area with Zermatt in Switzerland, connected through the Plateau Rosa glacier. Some of the runs are very long, the longest stretches 22 km from the Klein Matterhorn (in French, Petit Cervin) in Switzerland down to Valtournenche in Italy.
