Arco dei Gavi

Arco dei Gavi


Verona, Italy (IT)
The Gavi’s arch stands on the small square on the riverbank. The four-sided arch was built in Roman times (1st century AD) for the Gavi, a wealthy Roman - Veronese family. The elegant square, where the arch used to stay, was originally situated in the center of Via Postumia, the street leading to the Castelvecchio. In 1796, during the Napoleonic wars, the Arch was damaged greatly. It was moved here and reconstructed only in 1933. From the riverbank beyond the arch you will enjoy the view of the beautiful Ponte Scaligero.
