"SION" Sion by balhannah

Sion Travel Guide: 122 reviews and 468 photos

Sion's old town is one of the oldest in Switzerland.

History, dates it back to the Neolithic times.

Sion is also considered one of the sunniest places in Switzerland.

Hard to imagine a dry climate in Switzerland, but it is true, channels have
been cut into the mountain slopes to water the vineyards and fields.

Vineyards abound, as does history!

    The old town seems very picturesque and the scenery all around is fantastic! I loved your photo of Chamoson especially :-)

    Dee, lovely little page about Sion here. We once stayed a few nights here and really enjoyed the city and the surrounding region. One of the most famous Swiss VT members lives here as well.

    Looks lovely. The Swiss mountains always reminder me of the Rocky mountains in Alberta.
