The Italian Alps and the charm of Valle d'Aosta

Considered the most Frenchy Italian region, Valle d'Aosta is conserving some of the traditional traits that define its uniqueness. Despite being the county seat, Aosta is not a big city. It is rather a big village, with all the positive aspects this fact may concern. You can walk quietly in its city center, tasting local food, having the magnificent Italian Alps in the background. 

A brief history of Aosta

Aosta is an ancient city, with a complex and charming history. This territory is deeply linked to Italian history as its development coincided with the biggest expansion reached during the Roman Empire. Aosta then developed its actual structure in the next centuries, during the Middle Ages, being a center for trade, pilgrimage, and journeys.

Your guided tour will begin from the magnificent Porta Pretoria, the main gate of the old Roman Aosta. Then, we'll move rapidly to the stunning facade of the Roman Theater and the amazing “cryptoporticus”, an underground gallery built to elevate the Foro temples. Our walk will continue passing by a few classic monuments, and true Medieval masterpieces such as CollegiataChiostro di Sant’Orso and the Aosta Cathedral with its two characteristic towers.

Fontina cheese taste at the end of the tour

Our tour will end tasting some of the food specialties of this land. You will eat a selection of cured meat, two kinds of Fontina cheese, and a special Toma from Gressoney. Your throat will be pleased with two glasses of local wine.  

What are you waiting for?

Book now your tour to have the chance to discover Aosta with a qualified tourist guide. While walking and tasting you'll have the possibility to see the most suggestive corners of Aosta and be charmed by the Mont Blanc.
