Porta dei Borsari, Verona

4.3
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.

  • It is one of the strategic places to visit, door very well-preserved Roman and gives input to a very animated Street, fun and with good locations to buy fashion and take a coffee or chocolate.

  • Nice to walk through the streets of Verona and being so out of nowhere this impressive door! Its numerous arches make it special and unique!

  • always walking by chance by losing myself in the city like I normally do as a tourist, I run into this gigantic Roman gate in Verona ... you are surrounded by history ... from the middle ages in piazza delle erbe to Roman gates ... the statue of Cavour. awesome
