On our way to the Roman Forum, we cannot miss the Roman Gate Porta Borsari from the first century a. C. We will reach the market square Piazza Erbe to admire the several monuments and houses that sorround it. Piazza dei Signori, next to it, is the drawing room of the city, elegant and aristocratic. The tombs of the della Scala Family (Arche Scaligere) are a masterpiece of Gothic art.
