Stroll through this 2,000 year old theater in early morning or evening when to enjoy the best light on the edifice. These are well preserved ruins and the locals are understandably proud of them. They are just a 50 meters from the Praetorian Gate and Information Center in Aosta.

We were pleased to see every effort was being made to protect it but on the other had... More

These ancient ruins are something what you may not expect to see in a mountain town. In the past times the place served as a public theatre and nowadays this funcion has been restored. The tickets are sold in the near box office but the sightseeing of the place itself is free. It looks gorgeus in the sunset and walking... More

Nice roman ruin in the middle of the city. When we visited they had a light show in the evening illuminating the old stone walls, fascinating.

One wonders how the romans enjoyed their theatrical pieces in such a glorious mountain backdrop. Where these greek tragedies and comedies adapted to te mountain setting?

A nice introduction to the Roman Empire for young children. A small but nicely preserved site to fire the imagination in the young and not so young.

If you are around it really worth to take a look of it and also to visit the Churches and other monuments (and all are free of charge!). I enjoyed the explanations and how well it is preserved. I visited it as a side trip from Torino and was very happy with the whole town of Aosta.

The view of the Alps from this site was breathtaking. So humbling to know that this place was used by people so many centuries ago. I just couldn't stop taking photos.
