  • A few words of introduction. Tickets are from the archeological museum or the tourist office. Push chairs and backpacks are not allowed. It is not suitable for wheelchair users. Right! That’s all...  more »
  • Aosta is full of Roman remians and this visit helps you to imagine the grandeur of Roman architecture. A 7 - euro ticket allows you to visit several sites, so excellent value for money.  more »

  • Long tunnel under the ground. Nice to visit during a heatwave. Good for people who love history and can speak Italian. No information in English.
  • Cool place, nice atmosphere. Great historical background. Interesting movie about the place
