  • The arch, which is actually a bridge connecting two buildings, goes unnoticed for those who walk without your prior knowledge. Even the hanging whale rib bone can miss if you have prior knowledge. If through the Piazza dei Signori, enjoy.

  • Going from piazza delle Erbe in Piazza dei Signori is necessarily passes under a high arch. Here hangs from centuries a huge bone. No one has been able to say what bone and what was the reason for his presence. I asked several people to hear me tell more stories. In short, a secular cult of the city.

  • You can tell one finds oneself in a maritime nation. The Whale bones in the middle of Verona is still odd.

  • Beautiful to walk through, the style reminds me of Venice
  • Such an underwhelming Arco, that we didn't even notice the first couple times we walked through it.
  • Nice
  • Grandee
  • The Arco della Costa, is a footbridge linking the Domus Nova and the Palazzo della Ragione and Venetian era allowed the judges to travel from their residence, the Domus nova to City Court, Palazzo della Ragione, without having to go down the street, where they could be approached by mischief-makers or malicious users. The Arco della Costa owes its name to a whale's rib for centuries there hangs below. No one knows why there has been hung, and despite various theories and interpretations, remains a mystery. According to some it is a kind of relic brought from the Holy land from the Crusaders of Verona, others believe it may be a fossil, maybe found on the mountains around Verona, believed a bone of some mysterious monster, placed almost in the Centre of Verona superstitious – protection of the city.
