Tourists fascinated by places rich in history should choose Aosta, the ancient Augusta Pretoria, as their holiday destination. Aosta plays host to an array of cultural and artistic monuments from the prehistory until current days which make the town a true centre, an “Urbs” like Rome. A town that boasts all the characteristics of a great city of art, a lively capital of the Alps that is still not a mass tourism destination.
The majestic Porta Pretoria, the very well preserved great Roman city gate, a very rare example of a covered building as in Pompeii; and the amphitheatre, a true jewel of ancient architecture, which used to host up to 20,000 people. The guide will introduce you to the town sightseeing.
