Porta dei Borsari, Verona

(4.2/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Walk through a piece of ancient history at Porta dei Borsari, a Roman gate dating back to the first century CE. Admire the city's former main entrance and look for the inscription from the period of Emperor Gallienus' reign, when the gate was likely reconstructed. Once richly decorated, the arched gate now retains only its whitish facade and some detailing. Sandwiched between modern buildings, it creates an interesting contrast between new and old. Add Porta dei Borsari to your Verona travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Verona itinerary planner.

  • Is a point which refers a little history of Verona. Of architecture reminiscent of the Roman style, has your beauty and a lot of people shooting, but it's not a point much sought after, despite beating leg for Verona, possibly going to get past him.
