It's a nice big clock near Piazza Bra in Verona. One doesn't require any special efforts to go there. It is near Piazza Bra only.

The gateway to Verona, well worth seeing as you walk into city, look at the clock and enjoy entering the Piazza.

The gate is a very nice welcome to the people who are coming from the train sation. There is a interesting Shakespeare quote in the wall just after passing the gate. It makes you wonder about what that place was like many years ago.

Piazza Bra is flat with drop kerbs which makes wheel chair use really easy. This gate adds to the atmosphere and is well worth seeing with the clock. Simply beautiful.

Portoni della Bra is on the opposite side of the Arena with the park or square separating the two. Parking is very close by and from here you have easy access to restaurants as well as shopping.

Interesting historical piece of architecture which in effect acts as an entrance gateway to the central area to the town, stop a moment to look at the fine clock as you pass by
