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. Courmayeur also shares access to the glacial ski run of the Vallée Blanche with another French town, Chamonix, which sits at the opposite, northern, side of the Mont Blanc massif.HistoryThe ancient Curia Maior was always a popular tourist destination, thanks to its spa and the Mont-Blanc landscapes. During World War II, under the fascist regime and its "italianist" rule, the town was briefly renamed "Cormaiore".LandmarksCourmayeur’s picturesque mountain scenery make it an attractive year-round destination.
