Courmayeur is an Italian town and comune in the autonomous region of Aosta Valley, in northern Italy. It is located at the foot of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in western Europe, in the Graian Alps range, and is 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, although as the summit lies within the commune of Saint Gervais, it is the only French town that can claim to be the Top of Europe. Courmayeur also shares access to the famous glacial ski run of the Vallee Blanche with a French town, but in this case with Chamonix which sits at the other side of the peak known as the Aiguille du Midi.
Courmayeur’s picturesque mountain scenery and healthy mountain air make it an attractive destination year round. 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.
From 1991, in December takes place the Film and Literature event "Noir in Festival".
Transport and hiking 
Courmayeur is well connected to north-western Italy (220 km from Milan). The Mont Blanc Tunnel links the region to France. Lyon is 240 km away and can be reached in a few hours, and Geneva, Switzerland, is just 100 km away.
The nearby village of La Palud is the base station of the Funivie Monte Bianco, the cable car to the Pointe Helbronner linking it to the Vallée Blanche Aerial Tramway going to the Aiguille du Midi where there is a link to the Téléphérique de l'Aiguille du Midi, the cable car from Chamonix.
Dolonne, a sister-town of Courmayeur, has many residential areas and hotels, as well as a large sports centre. It is connected to Courmayeur by a bridge that straddles a tributary flowing from Mont Blanc.
Another mountain that surrounds Courmayeur is Mont Chétif. It is a hiker-friendly mountain with a statue of the Virgin Mary at the summit overlooking the town. It can be seen from practically anywhere in Courmayeur.
