The first ancient monument in Aosta to welcome visitors is the Roman bridge located in the eastern quarter of the city, called Pont de Pierre, that is “bridge of stone”.
The bridge sits above the ancient course of the Buthier River, a short distance from the Honorary Arch of Augustus.
The Roman bridge has a single humpback arch with its 17.16 m span was built during the Augustan age with blocks of stone. It is perfectly preserved and is still used as a thoroughfare today, although the Buthier River changed its course during the Middle Ages.
