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.

  • Good when included in tourist pass. Wouldn't pay for this alone as there isn't much to see. Film wasn't running when we went. But very interesting (and nice on a hot day).
