Arche ( i.e. arks - not arches or boats but meaning safe boxes ) = tombs. Powerful rulers of 13th/14th Century Verona, this Gothic memorial to the Scaligeri family continues to echo the control of the mediaeval city until it fell to Milan. The old town is suffused with dominant signs of della Scala over 600 years on. Although some... More

This is an unusual collection of graves and sarcophagi for one of the most senior families of the medieval town it is worth passing by just to see the intricacy of the stone carvings

This is a part of an unusual family burial place, so why it is called an arch? It looks like a stone canopy adorned with stone decor. If you learn the story of Verona rulers - you open the secret

A wall with iron grills separates this small burial area from the street. Extremely close to Piazza dei Signori, the medieval cemetery displays five monumental tombs that attest to the power of the Scaligeri family -- rulers in Verona from the 13th to the late 14th century. I thought these tombs were exquisite examples of Gothic art, from stone carved... More

It was really interesting and to get closer and get more information, have to pay to get in but a good view from the street. Would have loved to know more about what we were all looking at because it isn't something that you see every day. Also since we were passing through Verona on a half a day trip,... More

A powerful family in Verona in their time. Built so even in death, they must be looked up to. These are so ornate! Be sure to visit the little church up the steps. It's small but lovely

There is a small section of the old city where nobles vied to build the biggest flashiest tomb. They even built them before they died in case their offspring saved money building a smaller version. Something to look at as you pass by.

We came across this while looking for Romeo's house! It is a beautiful monument and shows the wealth of the Verona families.
