  • In the heart of the city of Aosta, accessible from the pedestrian historic centre. Archaeological site rather crop, but of great impact. Since the summer of 2016 the entrance is free of charge (a few dollars), but if you reach over Christmas you can get in for free because it houses the markets.

  • 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.
