Arches on Arches - worth a visit to view the way that it has been built. Looks better in the Tourist Board photos!

Love Italy - love how casually you can just stumble across a two thousand year old structure - just as part of the street furniture - its almost blasé. Wonderful to see yet difficult to comprehend - its age is pretty mind-blowing.

This is real roman history you can touch and all the more beautiful for being time worn yet still sturdy and finctional and used by thousands of people every day. The outside is more decorative than the inside and quite a revalation if you approach from the inside as we did the first time. This is a must see sight... More

Incredible to believe that this can still be standing and part of this beautiful city. Walked through from both directions, always a major attraction to many tourists but a must see. The oldest entrance to the city!

A must see on any sightseeing tour, located between Piazza Bra to Piazza dei Signori, the Porta dei Borsari represents the original "gate" into the old city of Verona. It dates from around 1 AD.

this ancient roman gate was inspirational to me. The fact that it stands still the faded beauty of the archway, the comfortable way it fits into the street scape, makes for yet another poignant piece of historical architecture in Verona.

Passed through here wits walking around Verona. This is the original old gateway to the city. If you look carefully you can see all the bullet holes from past skermises. Hardly suprising there's no glass in the Windows then. Must have got fed up with replacing it after the last episode.
