Lying in the upper basin of the Dora Baltea river, Valle d'Aosta occupies the northwestern extremity of Italian territory, bordering with Switzerland (north) and France (west). To the east and south it borders with Piedmont. The Valle d'Aosta is the smallest region in the Italian Republic and is also the most thinly populated. It is the only region without the territorial and administrative body known as the Province.
