We came from Chamonix on the way to Montreux, Switzerland because we had heard some good things about Aosta. As we approached Aosta, it looked pretty dreary until our GPS told us to "turn left" and we headed up the hill. This is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed at and we travel a lot. Our room was great with a balcony and a spectacular view of the valley. They have a wonderful spa with steam, sauna and two hot tubs. The pool is fantastic, with beautiful grassy areas with plenty of shade to dry off, read, or take a nap. They serve a very nice tea in the late afternoon and the breakfasts, which were included, are generous and delicious.
If you don't want to drive into town, you can walk about 400 meters up the hill to a little family restaurant, Amphora. The food is good and it's cheap. Friendly service and it was filled with locals when we were there.
Aosta old town lives up to its charming reputation - just a few minutes drive. We learned that parking is free on Saturday afternoons and all day Sunday. The museo has an excellent exhibit of Roman artifacts. The best was the recreated wine bar, complete with amphorae and graffiti. The cathedral is impressive, and next to it, they have dug out the old Forum. It's all underground now, and you can walk along two of the long porticos, eerily lit, while you listen to soft New Age music. We ate at two excellent restaurants, Vecchia Aosta in the Praetorian gate and Aosta Antica, near the Arch of Augustus.
We recommend the Parc Nazional, especially if you have kids. About 13 kilometers away.
Milleluci is well worth it, and we would like to come back.
