A small pearl in the mountains, this city was initially built as a military outpost to guard the Alps. Aosta, once called Augusta Praetoria, still retains the remains of its past as the capital of the Roman Empire. The theater, the baths and the forum, the heart of the life of the time, are well integrated into the city architecture framed by the Alps. The medieval castles and fortresses that populate the surroundings testify to the strategic importance of the city over the centuries.
Of the Roman city Aosta preserves very important monuments such as a bridge, the Arch of Augustus, the Porta Pretoria, the theater, the forensic cryptoporticus, the walls almost entirely preserved. The strictly orthogonal urban layout which divided the city into regular insulae is still legible today.
