Beware parking in Aosta is impossible so do not think of breaking your trip there. If you are not staying then pass on by.

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 !

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
