Gressoney Saint Jean

Gressoney-Saint-Jean (Walser: Creschnau Sankt Johann) is a town and comune in the Aosta Valley region of north-western Italy.

Gressoney Saint Jean is 80 km from Aosta and is an elegant town located on a flat plain at 1385 meters above sea level. It is surrounded by mountain peaks and the nearby Lyskamm glacier.

The historical center contains perfectly preserved walser houses grouped around the 275 year old church of San Giovanni Battista.

The symbol of the town is perhaps the panoramic area known as Belvedere. Here the Regina Margherita built her holiday home, the Castel Savoia, in 1894.

Visitors in January can catch the international nordic skiing event the Monterosalauf which takes place over a 25 km circuit.

Driving up the valley having turned off from the main Aosta autostrada, you will pass through the hamlets of Issime, Gaby, before Gressoney Saint Jean, then onto Gressoney La Trinite and finally the base of Monte Rosa.

Hoppa offers shared transfers in Gressoney-Saint-Jean.
