Overview
More
In proximity of the Pont d'Ael hamlet, on the right side of the road leading up to Cogne from Aymavilles, an aqueduct-bridge in masonry and stone blocks built above the Grand-Eyvia stream gives evidence of the magnificence of the works realised during the Roman era, measuring 56 metres in height and more than 50 metres in length. The monument had a double function of bridge and acqueduct and was consequently built on two different levels: a drain for canalizing water in the upper part and a covered passageway of about 1 meter width in the lower section, allowing the transit of men and animals. Free visit of the bridge all year round. From Spring to Autumn it is possible to visit the covered passage (for a fee).

Walking across, on what would have been the water course I suppose, was easy. Returning, within the viaduct was another kettle of fish altogether. Originally, the passage was for foot travel by people or their animals. But with restoration it now has a glass floor....More

This little gem of Roman engineering was recommended to us by a local and was well worth the short trip from Aosta. Unfortunately the information centre and internal part of bridge was not open when we visited but it was still worth a walk around...More

This two thousand years old Roman Bridge and aqueduct was found by chance! When you see the small road sign you never think about finding something like this! A beautiful bridge/aqueduct! For €$3,00 you get a quick guided tour and get the opportunity to cross...More

This bridge is hard to find unless you know where to go but it's a fantastic example of Roman engineering and construction. Built as an aqueduct across a very narrow and deep gorge you can walk across the top of the bridge as well inside....More

By itself, the view from the top of the aqueduct to the gorge below makes your visit worthwhile. We were lucky to arrive when the caretaker was there: he unlocked a gate which allowed us to walk inside the the aqueduct! To get here, set...More

This is an aqueduct left from the roman times, it is a short drive out of town but easily worth the drive. Aymavilles is an amazing mountain community that is its own little piece of history.
