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.

  • Well done the city of Aosta for the well preserved Roman history of the area. The Criptoportico was amazing, such an interesting place to visit. The video, in different languages, gave huge insight...

  • Impressive crypt. Buy the ticket (€10) that covers all the local archaeology sites from the local archaeology museum.

  • One of the historical place in Aosta. During summer, hit day, enjoy a fresh and calm landmark.
  • Impressive crypt. Buy the ticket (€10) that covers all the local archaeology sites from the local archaeology museum.
  • Good when included in tourist pass. Wouldn't pay for this alone as there isn't much to see. Film wasn't running when we went. But very interesting (and nice on a hot day).
  • There are roman ruins like this all over Aosta. If you like this sort of thing then there is definitely a day to had exploring them, no doubt with some coffee stops on route.
  • Impressive site that is nicely put in context with the video presentation at the end of the gallery. Wait for the section where they compare today with when the Forum was still in full glory.
