Walk the centuries-old halls of Criptoportico Forense, probably built to serve as a covered market or a walkway. The structure features three underground tunnels circumscribing a rectangular area--the entire complex once supported the forum of Augusta Praetoria, a city founded in 25 BCE by Emperor Octavian. Above the underground vaults once stood two temples dedicated to various Roman gods. Make Criptoportico Forense a part of your Aosta vacation plans using our Aosta trip planner .

たまたまチケット無料の日だったので入ってみました。 アーチ状の遺跡が地下に広がっています。 ローマ時代の遺跡に興味がない人には全く何がおもしろいかわからないと思います。 more »Because it was a ticket free day by chance, I entered it. Arched ruins are spread underground. If you're not interested in Roman ruins, you don't know what's interesting at all.
Long tunnel under the ground. Nice to visit during a heatwave. Good for people who love history and can speak Italian. No information in English.
Cool place, nice atmosphere. Great historical background. Interesting movie about the place
