"A Medieval and Modern City: Sion" Top 5 Page for this destination Sion by Tripack

Sion Travel Guide: 122 reviews and 435 photos

In the Heart of The Alps, you will discover a pleasant city bathing in the sun. The hills of Valère and Tourbillon are surmonted from two medieval castles, witness of a rich historical past. Sion, the capital state will offer you an excellent gateway to some alpine experiences.

So take enough time to discover the medieval history/architecture of our state capital of Valais, to taste the local vineyards in great cellars, to enjoy a "bisse" hike, to relax on a sunny terrace at the Midi or Rempart square or to enjoy a local VT-meeting ;-)

Welcome to Valais!
