Napoleon really enjoyed destroying things in the cities her occupied. From using the Sphinx as shooting practice, to destroying this beautiful Roman arc, the lack of respect is astounding. Thankfully the Arc was reproduced using the original marble and we get to see what it would have been like in the glory days.

My tour guide, Alberto, and I had interesting conversation here at this Arch. It’s one of the few NOT militarily related. During Napoleon, the Italians dismantled it, stored it in The Arena, and after Napoleon left, the Italians reassembled it in its current location. Ancient Roman Stone built Road can be seen under it. In Ancient Times, Cicero would have made his way, on horseback, like a cowboy, VIA this ancient stone roadway, to Verona from Rome.

Next to Ponte di Castelvecchio. In a little square you will find this structure. Is not very big but it has its historical importance

For me, driving past the Arch, it means that I am back in Verona. Situated next to the Castelvecchio it is a sign of times past. Napoleon, I was told, had it removed off the main road so he didn't have to go under it, as this meant paying homage to the builder of the thing. I don;t know in how far this is tru but it is something that makes me smile.

It is located on the banks of the Adige river, next to the "Castelvecchio" (Old Castle). This is just a bow, beautiful but what attracts more attention is the palace next door and the old bridge.

I was going to give this 5/5 because I liked it so much and it seemed under-appreciated. It was just there, behind a load of people waiting for a bus, and with some people using standing next to it taking a picture of the bridge - and it's a Roman arch! Then I put it down a notch because I realized that it had been reconstructed, using original stone, as a Mussolini publicity stunt. It did take a little of the magic away.....

The Arco dei Gavi was a marble arch originally built by a noble Roman family by the name of Gavia. The arch was demolished during Napoleonic rule and what we see today is a beautiful reconstruction using some of the original stone. It is situated close to the Museo di Castelvecchio and offers a free, photo opportunity.

When you look at this graceful arch you can see the Roman legions marching through. Actuallly you can see the wheel marks from the chariots if you look closely or I think I could.

This old arch is not far from the Castle. And worth a look and it's free. Outstanding architecture and cafes nearby.

This wonderful Roman triumphal arch used to sit on the old principal Roman road into the town, now Corso Cavour, but it was damaged by French troops in Napoleonic times and it was moved to this little piazza in the 1930s -
sadly overpowered by Castelvecchio and not protected from the hordes of photo-opportunists but not even mentioned on some tourist maps.
The old roadway with wheel ruts can still be seen - and a vivid imagination can picture the 2000 year old history of Roman life.
