While walking around the city center of Verona, you can stop by the Arche Scaligere. You can admire the stonework from outside; if the gates are open you can enter with a small payment (either 1 or 2 euro, can't remember exactly).

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