Arche Scaligere, Verona

4.0
#10 of 36 in Historic Sites in Verona
Get in touch with Verona's medieval past at Arche Scaligere, which preserve the memory of the Della Scalla family, rulers of the city in the 13th and 14th centuries. The five ornate Gothic monuments occupy the front courtyard of a small church constructed during the 12th century. Shaped like little temples, the tombs remain one of Verona's outstanding examples of Gothic art. Pay special attention to the tomb of Cangrande I, the most celebrated member of the family. In honor of his name, which means "big dog" in Italian, Cangrade's tabernacle-shaped tomb features images of harnessed dogs.

    Monument of the very interesting architecturally, but very poorly exposed. It is difficult to accurately watch from the side of the pedestrian route.

    Square in the bizarre architecture that was. Could see the Guidebook and in the grave, but only one was taking pictures. Look a little bit different.

    An absolutely impressive Tomb in the middle of the city. The tombs are absolutely worth a visit in its artistic design.

Where to stay in Verona

The historical center of Verona is packed with famous luxury hotels, which offer all the modern conveniences but also tend to be very expensive and require booking months in advance. If you're a spontaneous traveler visiting on a budget and staying in the central area is not one of your musts, consider checking into a small B&B or family-operated farm just outside the city. Verona's picturesque countryside offers less expensive but comfortable lodgings with good food and friendly hosts, all within a short drive from the bustling city center.
