Create an itinerary including Porta Borsari - World Heritage Site
Walk through a piece of ancient history at Porta Borsari - World Heritage Site, a Roman gate dating back to the first century CE. Admire the city's former main entrance and look for the inscription from the period of Emperor Gallienus' reign, when the gate was likely reconstructed. Once richly decorated, the arched gate now retains only its whitish facade and some detailing. Sandwiched between modern buildings, it creates an interesting contrast between new and old.

  • This is one of the old doors that were built aside the roman walls. It is still quite well preserved and gives a sense of history to your tour. Not to be missed.

  • Thios is a very old roman gate that is worth looking at as you go round the historic center of the city. One side is ornate but the other is quite plain.

  • A beautiful entrance to the old town of Verona. When we visited was not so crowded so we had time to admire it and take some decent photos of it. Unfortunately, in the street at the front of the structure there were some works taking place and it was a bit loud. The structure is dated back to the 1st century AC.
  • The road that runs through the gate is under construction(as of August 2022)so pedestrians can only walk past via the covered walkway on the side.
