Cogne Aosta Valley

Roman city of Aosta

Aosta, also known as the "Rome of the Alps", was founded by the Romans in 25 BC with the name Augusta Praetoria. The colony was established near the confluence of the Buthier torrent with the River Dora.

There are many remains and monuments in Aosta dating from Roman times: the Arch of Augustus, The Praetorian Gate, the theatre, the cryptoporticus and almost all of the defensive walls.
 
The church of Sant'Orso (Saint Ursus) is also well worth a visit (the most significant evidence of the history of religious art in Valle d'Aosta), with interesting Romanesque frescos and the cloister with its magnificent series of historiated medieval capitals.
