Don't go out of your way to see these ruins but if you are passing interesting ruins to stop and look at.

Porta Leoni (Gate of the Lions) is an ancient Roman gate The gate was built during the Roman Republic by P. Valerius, Q. Caecilius, Q. Servilius and P. Cornelius, and restructured in imperial times. It was connected to the road which led to Bologna and Aquileia.

You don't need to go far to see these ruins. They are literally on the street as you wander through Verona. Just another thing to do while in town.

We walked out of our way to see this attraction. If I had to do it all over again, I would not have done it. There wasn't much to see. The attraction is more the idea that there are Roman ruins underground and that the street is cut open so you can view them.

We accidentally found this site while walking through central Verona and its quite interesting, particularly the difference in level between the Roman times and nowadays.

This archaeological site, is well preserved and presented but lacking in documentation comparing it with the rest of the sights in Verona are.

Tear down houses from the Middle Ages to uncover Roman ruins? Areas were uncovered and you can gaze down to see. What a wonderful solution.

While walking in old Verona we just happened by the partially excavated ancient Roman ruins of the Porta del Lioni. Cordoned off & open for viewing, these are remnants of ancient Roman Verona. Interesting!

This is a nice archaeological site, well preserved and presented but lacking in documentation which is surprising considering how well labelled the rest of the sights in Verona are. We found this site by accident while walking through central Verona and found it quite interesting, particularly the difference in level between the Roman times and today. The area is surrounded by restaurants so plenty of options to sit and eat while trying to work out what the ruins actually were.

To appreciate these ruins, which are quite accessible being in the middle of a busy street, one has to do some homework. The foundations of the walls and a tower, with an adjacent Roman gate, only come into meaning when one has learned where the original Roman city lay and how the city expanded from there. Of the Italian cities we have explored, Verona has the most convoluted history but when finally sorted out, one of the most interesting.
