    ... Italian villages to pick up and drop off the locals going about their day - fascinating.

    Arriving in Aosta, we weren't sure what to expect, but walking around, soon discovered the many ancient ruins from the days of the Roman Empire - arches, bridges, fortresses, towers, and even a huge Roman ampitheater.

    ... about 2.5m away - I've never seen one that close before, normally they are quite shy. We are now at the Auberge d l'Hospice at the top of the pass 2,500m above sea level where we will spend the night.

    We arrived at Refugio Elena early afternoon and when showed to our room decided we must of died and gone to heaven. It was a spacious private room with a queen bed, a stunning glaicer view, and ...

    Leaving the attractive village of Courmayer, we wished we had time to spend an extra day.

    Right away we were hit with a very steep and rocky uphill that the guidebook had sugercoated in its decription as not that bad. It was bad. All in all, the steep downhill into Courmayer and the steep uphill slog to get out was the toughest part of the whole tour du Mont Blanc.
