As a lot of different beautiful places and sightseeing, the town hall is as well very old. The condition of the building is awsome

So much to see so start with a stroll through the pedestrianised streets and enjoy fabulous shops, then see the Augustan arch, the Praetorian arch and the amphitheatre. It's lovely to see a Roman town still bustling with life as people live alongside such a piece of history. Well worth a visit.

I would advise everyone to avoid Aosta at all costs. We got lost in their very confusing system and as a result got fined despite displaying clearly a disabled blue badge. No consideration at all. They do not deserve visitors.

They have the best Hot Chocolate. You would eat it, not drink it. Lucy's I Think... Not far from Hotel De Ville.

Aosta offer some impressive Roman remains, as the theatre, the impressive entrance gate and Augustus arch. A nice town to have a walk, do some shopping, enjoy some ice cream or a have a break for a drink or nice local food
