Overview
More
The Aostan Roman Theatre stands out for its straight southern facade measuring 22 meters in height. Its majesty is punctuated by a series of buttresses and arches and is lightened by three orders of windows with different width. The masonry is characterized by large rectangular blocks of conglomerate and of local limestone. This suggestive part was originally longer than 60 m. The east and west sides were about 38 m long. The cavea is easily recognisable, as a semicircular structure where the public sat. Only the last six steps remain visible, in addition to the two, lower and wider, where the most important people used to sit. The radial substructures on which laid the rest of the terraces are still in their original place. The stage was located in front of the cavea, of which only the foundations are still visible. Small rooms behind served as dressing rooms for the actors, while the sides of the stage were used as deposits for equipment. The entire structure was then completed by arcades that stood against the perimeter wall on the shorter sides. The theatre was not built at the same time when the city was founded (25 BC), but rather a few decades later, in the Julio-Claudian era, as some previous buildings were found in this very area.

Fantastic view with sunshine and snow on the side and on the grass. Worth the trip! Aosta is a beautiful small town with great history

A lovely afternoon exploring Aosta. There are various well preserved sites throughout the town and for a 7 Euro ticket you can visit 4 sites and the ticket is valid for a year so if you only visit a couple can save the rest.

This should be the second attraction to visit of the 4 included in the ticket. The first thing you notice is the impressive wall of the theater - you see the external side of the southern wall of the theater as you enter the site....More

At the foothills of the Alps, Aosta was a key Roman city and the Theater ruins give a good sense of the size of the the theater. The photos as you enter show how the theater actually would have looked.

The Roman theater in Aosta is one of the masterpieces of the Roman architecture of the High Empire, it is well preserved. There are more beautiful suggestive events. The price is very low , only Euro 7 you can see other three fantastic archeological sites.

With the car, you take the D902, then the D 1090 and the montain pass "Petit Saint-Bernard", then the A5. In Aosta you can park your car near the Place Portes Prétoriennes.
