Those who arrive in Verona by train will pass through two gateways. The first is the Porta Nuova and the second set are the Portoni della Bra at the entrance of the Piazza Bra. The Portoni della Bra consists of two stone archways, erected in 1480 on the site of a gateway that made up part of the city walls. A short distance away, a pentagon-shaped tower remains, a sole remnant of the fortifications put up at the time of the Viscounts. Passing through the archways is a significant experience; one feels one is entering the heart of old Verona, into the piazza dominated by the immense structure of the Arena .
