Porta dei Borsari is all that remains of a fortress constructed in the first century AD. It was the point of entry to the City where all visitors had to pass and be levied with the relevant taxes. It was reconstructed in 265AD under direction...More

Agree it’s only another ruin & certainly not a major attraction worth going out of your way , but it is impressive, & the fact that it is still standing after so many years is still amazing. Hard to miss any of these gates when...More

Like the previous poster says, do t go out of your way to visit this wall. It’s ok for a photo, but that’s it.

Yes another ancient gate in the ancient city. Nothing spectacular but if it's on your route it's worth it. It attaches between modern buildings

This is as fine an example of an old city gate as you can find in Italy. You expect it to be part of the city wall but it is found between two apartments. What a way to have entered the city.

It was quite an unexpected find, but a very interesting one. Apparently part of the old city walls, now tucked away between two apartment buildings. Beyond it is a nice shopping street.

This is the ancient Roman gate to enter Verona. Once inside the streets come alive in bars, street cafes and shopping.
