Criptoportico Forense, Aosta

4.4
#5 of 18 in Historic Sites in Valle d'Aosta
Walk the centuries-old halls of Criptoportico Forense, probably built to serve as a covered market or a walkway. The structure features three underground tunnels circumscribing a rectangular area--the entire complex once supported the forum of Augusta Praetoria, a city founded in 25 BCE by Emperor Octavian. Above the underground vaults once stood two temples dedicated to various Roman gods. Make Criptoportico Forense a part of your Aosta vacation plans using our Aosta trip planner .

  • If I write what I really think, should I use terms a little inconvenient ... An underground completely, totally, completely empty. I find it puzzling not so much because it is empty, but because the pictures lying around they do look quite different. It is a dark and humid, without absolutely nothing at all to see Rest truly amazed by how you could get a ticket for a theatre that has more than 5 end of residual places and to an underground corridor without anything to see Baldwin ...

  • It is without a doubt the thing I liked best about Aosta, very beautiful and spectacular, lit well.

  • We chanced in Aosta and found a city to see. In particular the cryptoporticus truly deserves to be visited because it is a very impressive sight. It costs 7 euros for adults and allows you to visit the cryptoporticus, the Roman Forum, the early Christian Church and the Museum. Honest price.

  • It is totally worth buying the ticket to see the 4 monuments.
  • Opening hours March to September: daily from 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. October to February: daily from 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Last entry 15 minutes before the closing time Closed on December 25th and January 1st
  • To see why it is a magic that rarely occurs because I think it's just the porches of an ancient Roman Forum that may be seen as still interred: to my knowledge should not be more than two or three in all. What I appreciate is that the structure is not a ruined life, but is still at the center of studies and archaeological study and functional. Let us not forget that everything you visit for free!

  • Always does effect see the ruins of the ancient Roman engineering, and this porch is intact. Inside there are information panels that give an idea of the magnificence of what was supposed to be "Augusta Prætoria." Shame that as usual only a portion is open to the public.

  • These ruins/kryptene under the Cathedral is worth a look. I for my part spent only 10 minutes here, then I was saturated in the adventures. In the summer heat, it is good and cool down here.
