Arche Scaligere, Verona

(4.3/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Arche Scaligere at the forefront of your travel plans using our Verona itinerary planner.

  • We went specifically to see it since it was not within our route. It was worth the penalty is spectacular. They really are five Gothic funerary monuments that have been surrounded by the other buildings. They have a fabulous ornamentation.

  • Unique piece of art/architecture but not really worth going out of your way for. You can only really see it from a distance.
  • Nice place in center. Much more better then shops
  • Cool, but hard to take pictures of because of how close together the streets are and how tall the monuments are.
  • Famous landmark
  • Beautiful details in the architecture
