Near an ancient palace you see this very nice Arc del Gavi, from here you visit the old castle of Verona, a historical area.

This freestanding arch is right next to Museo Castelvecchio with a busy bus/ tram stop directly in front. There is a lovely view of the Ponte de Castelvecchio and the river from the small park in which the arch sits. The arch itself is a nice photo opportunity but otherwise fairly unremarkable.

A good example of an ancient triumphal archway. Well preserved, has the original roadway beneath it.

Amazing to walk under this arch, it is not roped off, so that you can walk on the stones walked on by the Roman soldiers! Amazing!

Wonderful to be under, just imagining its construction and who and what passed through it. Neat to see where it was moved from, too.

Well it is, I suppose, but the cobbles at the bottom have groove marks where the chariots use to pass through in Roman days. It only leads to the river but it has been moved here from its original position back in the 1930's.

This arch was apparrently taken down and the components numbered and thereafter rebuilt in its present location. This came as a surprise to us!

There's a good view of the arc from the other side. Just cross the Castelvecchio bridge and take a picture of the arc from the different side of the river. It looks pretty cute from out there. Small and pretty But when you come closer, you can see it is nothing like that. It is tall and proud, standing there... More

An interesting nugget of history to stumble upon. You won't need long there but it's worth passing by if it's convenient as you saunter through Verona. On the other hand, if you don't have time, you won't have missed too much.
