Porta dei Borsari, Verona

(240+ reviews on the web)
Ruin
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.

  • Porta borsari practically between via Borsari and via Castel Vecchio. You cannot but admire this majestic structure. Even if you can not ... ... Via obviously full of shops and clubs. The historic center! :-D

  • na elegant city gate leads to the intact and harmonious city. Large Roman architects and developers building essays give us this pleasant scaligeri summarising the everlasting taste and universal.

  • When you stand in front of this door (which, incidentally is the only downtown), think about how it could be over them perfectly wedged between the buildings. Beautiful Roman friezes, with still very definitely worth the visit.
