For me, driving past the Arch, it means that I am back in Verona. Situated next to the Castelvecchio it is a sign of times past. Napoleon, I was told, had it removed off the main road so he didn't have to go under it,...More

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.
