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...More

Built in the first century, the arc was destroyed but later rebuilt with the original stones. The stones you are standing on plus the arc is a sight to see. It is now situated near the Castelvecchio Bridge. Worth seeing!

Lovely 'blast from the past'. The Arch is within walking distance from other tourist sights and worth snapping a pic or simply admiring its architecture. Lots of cafes and gelato near by ;)

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.

The fascinating ruts in the paving beneath the arch were worn by the passage of Roman chariots long ago. All reminiscent of wagon ruts on the Oregon Trail. The arch is beautiful too.

No trip to Verona would be complete with a walk to the Arco Dei Gavi. Built by the Gavi family back in the day (100 AD) this arch was the entrance to the old Roman city. It was moved next to the museum in modern...More
