  • Arco della Costa. Very interesting to know the history of this period, because that thing is stuck under the arch, but especially what stuck (perhaps whale's rib ... mah)??? It is up to you to find out ...;-)

  • The arches, which is the jewel among the houses are part of Verona. You can meet them at different place and belongs to the local architecture.

  • Upon arriving in Piazza delle Erbe, after a look at the historic buildings that surround it, heading towards Piazza dei Signori don't forget to look up as you pass under the arch that sits between the Palace of the courts and the Palazzo della Ragione: there is hung for centuries a whale rib, or Ichthyosaur, without letting you know exactly how When and why you are right there. Its location has attracted so much interest that the arc has taken its name from fossil (Arco della Costa) forgetting its primary function of supporting the footbridge was used, during the Venetian era, by the magistrates for the jurisdiction of the Palace where they resided, without passing on the street ... thus avoiding contact with the population and any attempted bribery or intimidation.

  • Whale coast in plain sight. Legend has it that the costs fall on the first passer-by honest passing below. And in fact is still there;)

  • A classic if you are in Verona, but perhaps not attracts much tourists.
