"Susa - Attractive Roman mountain town" Susa by Willettsworld

Susa Travel Guide: 61 reviews and 133 photos

Susa in Piedmont, lies just over the the border between France and Italy near the Frejus Tunnel (approx 37km/23 miles) away. Turin is about 40km/25 miles further east via the A32 autostrada.

This attractive mountain town flourished in Roman times: the Arch of Augustus, built in 8 B.C. commemorates the alliance between the local Gaulish chieftain and the Emperor Augustus. Other relics from the Roman period include two arches of an aqueduct, sections of an amphitheatre and traces of the old town walls.

Most of the historic centre of the town is medieval, including the castle of Countess Adelaide and the Duomo, both originally 11th century.

    An excellent page ! What is amazing is that we have not seen the same things in Susa and there is a almost nothing the same in our pages ! That does mean that Susa has even more to offer to the visitor !
