Went to Aosta with no expectations and was overwhelmed by the small, upscale shops, restaurants, and historic Roman arch and theater.

Aosta old town is an enchanting place with a lot of small shops and cafes. They make the old town colourful, although most of the houses are the same dull grey-brown colour. And then there are roman ruins practically in the middle of the town,...More

Gorgeous views of the slightly snow covered mountains, really quaint and a pretty place to visit. The people from the village were friendly and family friends made us feel very comfortable.

Most of the old town of Aosta is pedestrian, so leave your car at the hotel, stroll past the Arco d’Augusto, through the « Porta Pretoria » and enjoy the cobblestone streets. Wonderful little shops, great pastries... and lots of churches, museums and galleries to visit. Really...More

Aosta is a charming town with many Roman ruins, including a huge memorial arch built in the early first century. We walked across an arched, cobblestone-paved bridge still in use from Roman times. Pretty cool.
