No words can describe the feeling of being in front of these well-preserved ruins and telling the stories of their time. Speechless.

Well presented gate as the entrance to the older part of the town. Some nice small shops and cafes. It is is on the junction to the Roman theatre and further down the street to the church ruins.

Nice entrance for the city, on your way in the city, you'll go through it. You can find some information on the history behind it there or online !

A well laid out and presented, small, part of the roman remains. There were some English translations. The footbridge over the display gave it presence, and as I was not expecting it amongst all the shops, it was a pleasant interlude.

This is not just a wall but the intact buildings around it as well! They use at least part of one for regular use, if it were the us it would be a national landmark or something. Doesn't feel there is respect for the heritage,...More

The Roman (double) gates are huge, beautiful and impressive. What I loved most about them, and the Roman arch at the end of the street, was the incredible street life of Aosta that flowed through and around them. This is a fantastic little city with...More
