This was not opened when I went past but it was a very interesting place to see. Loved how the tombs were up high. It was really interesting with the strange architecture.

This was free to just walk by on our tour. Interesting to see the ornate works in the gates as pointed out by our tour guide Silvia from Colors of Italy. These tombs were from the Scala family from the 1300’s. Worth a look!

The Scala family who raised the poor town of Verona to a prosperous and wealthy city have evidence of their influence throughout Verona, but the monument here, celebrating the life of its most important members, is impressive.

These tombs sit above ground - perhaps to show that they were above everyone else? The detail in the carvings is stunning and intricate!

Interesting ruins near the historic Erbe Square and the house of Juliet. I only looked at them from outside.

Completely free to see, this small square has some architectural ruins on display in the city centre, behind iron gates. Clearly visible all round, it's worth a stop for photos.
