The town is named after Monte Cervino, the Italian name for the Matterhorn mountain, that Cervinia shares with Zermatt on the other side of the mountain in Switzerland. The town is situated at an elevation of 1524 meters and surround by infinite snowy mountains reaching up to 3800 meters. The Matterhorn itself ecen touches 4478 meters.
Breuil-Cervinia is one of Italy’s most known ski resorts and has developed itself to a niche since the 70’s. It is quite an up-market town, probably because of its cross border link with Zermatt. The slopes of the area around Breuil Cervinia are perfect for families with children. The red pistes are generally not that steep and feel more bleu than red. As the town is an upmarket town, it is generally more quiet compared to Austria for instance, except in the weekends where you find some après ski bars showing a bit of liveliness. There are various restaurants, shops and bars in town if you want to look for a different setting. Breuil Cervinia is also in summer a great center for various trekking tours to and around the surrounding mountain ranges.
