Simple but it was easy to find

As we drove into Aosta and were trying to find a place to park, which was not the easiest of tasks, we came across this arch. It is fairly simple but it is well preserved.

It is obvious that if you are anywhere near Aosta you must see this Roman site. It is well conserved, albeit perhaps in need of a cleaning.

This arch must be viewed from a distance since it is in the middle of a roundabout. It is at the edge of the old area of Aosta and dates back to Roman times. It is just another feature that made our 3 hour walk around Aosta fascinating. I wonder why there is a crucifix in the middle of it?

The Arco Onorario d'Augusto or Arch of Augustus as it is more commonly known in English, was built in 25 BC, on the occasion of the Roman victory over the Salassi tribe. It is extremely well preserved for its age and building material (conglomerate stone blocks). It is located not far from the ancient city wall of Aosta which is... More

Interesting to see this well preserved arch. However, it is a little disappointing that this is in the middle of the road and not easily reached. Good for a photo opportunity though.

A few minutes walk outside Aosta town centre the arch is worth the small detour to get here. The arch dates from 25 BC and was built to commemorate the Roman army's victory over the local Salassi tribe. Although somewhat marooned amid a roundabout the views afforded to the roundabout are not obscured for 360 degrees and onc can get... More

Visited Aosta and the Arco Augusto in August 2013 as part of a holiday to the Alps. Impressive arch, just a shame its in the middle of a traffic roundabout. Dont forget to see roman walled city remains while your in Aosta, and try the Ice cream and chocolates too.
