Breuil-Cervinia is an alpine resort in Valle d'Aosta (Aosta Valley), Italy. The resort is named after Monte Cervino, the Italian name for the Matterhorn Mountain, which Cervinia shares with Zermatt, Switzerland.
The Aosta Valley, beginning at 1,524 meters in Valtournenche, is an infinite snowy area that embraces Breuil-Cervinia. It rises up to 3,480 meters at Plateau Rosà, touches the 4,000 meters peak of Piccolo Cervino and climbs up to 4,478 meters to the top of the Cervino Mountain (the Matterhorn).
Cervinia is one of Italy's most important resorts and has carved a niche as an up-market enclave, perhaps in part because of its cross-border link to Zermatt, Switzerland.
