If you are walking around Verona without paying to much attention you will definitily not atend to this "porta". Pay attention at the details of the construction.

I returned for the first time in Verona after decades, and I saw again - among other landmarks and sights - this gate. I don't remember it was so nice. This is undoubtedly due to the time when lately I saw it: late at night, with a clever artificial lighting, glorifying the white limestone structurem carved and perfectly preserved, and... More

No need to be a historian to walk through this arch an appreciate this facade that has stood in place since the ancient Romans built it. Pass this on your walk from Piazza Bra to Erbe.

This is a bit of a surprise as unless you approach it from the right side you won't recognise it. The back, which is what you are likely to see first, is very plain but from the otherside it is quite splendid. If you don't find it at first keep looking.

Amazing how pieces like this are spread over the city. At first glance, it doesn't look so special but it's beautiful when you get closer. Especially the immensity of the gate
