As far as I'm aware Apple doesn't offer the links directly, but iClarified has a complete list of iOS downloads for all models of iPhone available here. It came in handy when I downgraded my old 3G back down to 3.1.3

It's also worth noting that you may not be able to downgrade the OS on your device as the baseband may no longer be compatible. This is more of an issue on iPhones than iPod Touches though. – Kyle Cronin Dec 1 '10 at 23:04
That iClarified site does not have iPod Touch downloads. Is there a site with the old versions of iPod Touch software? – Greg Mar 26 '13 at 17:05
