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

We are used to seeing clocks on the top of towers but Verona is a very special place in this case: a big old clock is placed on the top of the entrance city arched gate

It was interesting but once you path through, that was it. Enjoy it for the historical value of it. The town is just full of history and this is one of those structures.

By this portal you enter to the famous piazza Bra; a famous portal, ther are many of this in Verona, but this one is particulary nice in the heart of Verona; you will find many parkings around; it's a reference point in the city, for a nice visit.
