Visited with a friend...great time at the end of September...not so many tourists. Fun looking at the shops...a liquor shop in particular with a bazillion kinds of grappa. Roman ruins pretty impressive, albeit smallish.

"Romans put it there, and it still stands!" - that was my husband exclaiming as he saw the ancient Roman Arc. There is a very real feel of the ancient history here, and it doesn't look being that far away in Aosta.

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
