Édifices romains Italy
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Édifices romains

Recognising the strategic importance of the region, the Romans took it over and founded Augusta Praetoria in the 1st century. If you follow the trail of the ancient Consular Route of the Gauls, you will be surprised by the amount of Roman constructions which can still be seen. Pont-Saint-Martin, a city located a few miles from the border with Piedmont, takes its name from a Roman bridge which is still perfectly intact. In Donnas, a little further north, you can walk on the cobblestone route taken by the Gauls and pass under a Roman arch that has been sculpted into the rock. Aosta is strewn with structures from the Roman period: the Arco d'Augusto (August Arch), the Porta Praetoria (Praetorian Gates), and the Criptoportico Forense (a part of the forum).
