Beautiful piece of Roman architecture

This double Roman gate dates back to the reign of Claudius and remains in remarkably good condition, sandwiched between two more modern buildings. Worth a visit for some photos... read more

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

this Gate gives you an idea of what to expect inside verona's town since it was the main gate. I was surprised because it is really well maintained and like usual the Roman majesty and Architecture is so beautiful. This gate gives you access to a very nice shippong street.

Among the sightseeings most exciting of my adventure in Verona undoubtedly I rank this as the top 5. Gate Bossari, after 2000 years this beautiful Roman building still dominates mighty this entry gateway to the city. I had seen a lot about Roman and buildings but never in my life a sight so beautiful. The arch door is majestic and... More

The Porta Borsari gate constitutes the western façade added in the first years of the principality of Claudius to a more austere building in bricks. This is a beautiful example of early Roman architecture. Time for visit - 15 minutes.

This is a very impressive example of Roman architecture. The original entrance to verona just gives an idea of what the Romans did. Still remains in excellent condition and one of the best sites in Verona. Also entrance to one of the main shopping streets. A must see for me.

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. That it has lasted in it's present condition in this unkindly situation, is evidence of the highest tradesmanship and stone quality available at the time. Make sure that you... More

Looks a lot like Portini della Bra. Except this one doesnt have a huge clock and has 2 gateways. Both are beautiful to see and not to miss as if you want to check out all of Verona you'll pass these two.

This is a great and ancients gateway to one of the most busiest streets in Verona. At Christmas time you have a "Bauli" (Italian brand for panettone) tree and although it might see simple the street it follows has a great ambience and amazing Christmas decorations.

One of the many ancient sites or sights that makes Verona so special. A marble gateway with a long history. Makes you wonder how many millions of people have passed beneath their majestic arches over the years.
