The town of Aosta dates back to 25 B.C. when it was constructed as a Roman town, equipped with typical facilities of the times such as thermal baths, amphitheatre, town walls, fortifications and archway, many of which can be seen today. (La Porta Praetoria, Il Teatro Romano and the Museo Archeologico Regionale can all be visited free of charge). In recent times, Aosta has become extremely popular with tourists and it never fails to provide entertainment for visitors including art and craft fairs, street markets and similar events all of which run regularly throughout the year, often in the main square Piazza Chanoux. The town is very well serviced with a large selection of bars, cafes, restaurants, ice-cream parlours, clothes shops, craft-shops and bakers’ selling fantastic local produce.
