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.

    Throughout the year, Aosta is full of visitors yet it manages to maintain its ‘small town’ feel and provide tourists with an interesting and relaxing break. It’s a really lovely town with some interesting monuments, museums and roman sites to visit. The main town and high street is lovely to walk around and take in the scenery with a great selection of shops and bars for a lazy weekend escape. (Lyn Gladwin)
