Once you are underground here, there is not much to see. As noted by others, it is calm and eerie, but we preferred sitting in the garden.

One of the 4 sites of Aosta included in the very reasonably priced €7 collective ticket (along with the Roman theatre, archaeological museum and nearby church). On a hot day, this place is great just for its cooler temperature! However, architecturally, it is so impressive and the video in the far corner is very educational. Absolutely well worth a visit

This old underground criptoportico was beautiful, calm, eerie and happily free from other tourists so we could really feel the atmosphere, with beautiful music softly playing in the background. A very interesting and informative video was constantly playing at one end, rotating through different languages, including English. Well worth the visit.

Absolutely amazing. The underground romains of the roman forum. Extremely well renovated and very well kept up, like all the other sites we visited in Aosta. I recommend getting the ticket which includes the 4 major sites, for 7 euros.

Imagine yourself here, almost 2000 years ago, in your town's public criptoportico, perhaps escaping the summer heat, as the bustle of activity in the Forum above you continued on... What a fascinating place.

There's a very good video inside that is played in Italian, French and English and provides a lot of context. Otherwise, marvel at the Roman stonework, check out the Roman-era plaster that is still present on parts of the walls, find the old baptism pool that was carved there several hundred years ago... At first glance you are just walking inside a cool space but the details are truly mind-boggling. There are literally thousands of years of history down there.

The exhibit docent - a local from Aosta who is an archeologist - spent 20-30 minutes with us answering all of our questions and filling in with extra information... he made our experience all the more intimate and I thank him dearly!
