this ancient roman gate was inspirational to me. The fact that it stands still the faded beauty of the archway, the comfortable way it fits into the street scape, makes for yet another poignant piece of historical architecture in Verona.
This Roman gate is gorgeous and a genuine part of the city. We walked through it everyday. It is beautifully lit at night but we enjoyed our early morning coffee there. It was a great place to sit and do some people watching.
Verona is filled with history. One of the many places, which will brong you back centuries before you were born is the Porta dei Borsari. We've sadly noticed, that many people are just passing by, without even noticing this beautiful gate, dating from the 1st century AD. It used to be the main entrance of the city at that time...
