We were not disappointed. The old Town part of Aosta is quaint and full of little gift shops, eateries, coffee shops and boutiques. Later in the day/early evening the locals and visitors mix on the piazza, the streets and the Christmas market, and it creates...More

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.

What is it with this town. Parking nightmare. We broke our trip here - some big mistake (maybe true of Italy generally in August, but that's another story). So little to see. Pass on by!

The Roman ruins are awe-inspiring, and the city itself is delightful. We stopped at a bakery and ended up conversing with the owner and her husband, who owns the shop next door. Both were so genuinely friendly. That feeling permeated our visit. We especially enjoyed...More

"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.
