  • Archaeological complex dating back to Roman times. You enter this space from a narrow alley and be faced with this work leaves you breathless. It is very well preserved and, despite attracting many tourists, is well maintained and clean: an example for other cities and other monuments. Things to get lost to admire its beauty.

  • Just to killing time , not so bad, but not so exciting! It is better to visit in a fine weather, as there is no cover... if you have been Roman theater in Rome or Verona , or Greek theatre in Sicily.....  more »

  • A great little piece of history that has been perfectly integrated with the city for 2 thousand years.
  • Breathtaking history. At night it's not easy to get close but just left to the eastern corner you can approach it on a platform
  • Great food and prices
  • According to local tradition, in 1833 for the building of the municipality of Aosta was proposed to use the Roman Theatre as quarry stone: to oppose this destruction the prior and historian Jean-Antoine Gal he would go personally walk in Turin by the King to invoke the intervention [1]. Since the first archaeological investigations began in 1838 Carlo Promis area: the walls unearthed were attributed to a praetor's Palace (Palais du préteur). A first summary accommodation of all took place in the 1920s. Extensive restoration and renovation between 1933 and 1941 affected the façade and the Southwest. Always in the same area in the 1960s excavations have uncovered remains of houses of the 2nd or 3rd century a.d. and the basics of six columns that are part of a porch that skirted a way.
