There is something intangible about this Gate that makes it fascinating to look at; Like Hadrian's Gate in Antalya Turkey, it has been tastefully constructed and is a joy to behold.

We stayed by Porta Leone, which in itself is amazing and has some excellent posters re information on 1st C buildings, but the completeness of Porte Borsai added to our understanding of what greeted visitors to Roman Verona.
