Palazzo della Ragione

Overview

The emblem of medieval Verona

A symbol of the city's power, the Palazzo della Ragione was the beating heart of Verona for centuries and still today represents an unmissable stop for anyone discovering the city of the Scaligeri.

It is located near the famous Piazza Erbe, a stone's throw from Juliet's House and its iconic balcony. The building dates back to the 12th century, when Verona was ruled by the Della Scala family. Today, it houses the Achille Forti Gallery of Modern Art, a real must-see for Veronese fans of the visual arts of the 19th and 20th centuries.

The palace is composed of several elements that blend together to form a harmonious whole. Enter the courtyard and admire the beautiful red and white stripes of colour created by the alternating use of brick and tuff. All around you, pillars and round arches support an elegant portico. From here, thanks to the Scala della Ragione staircase in red Veronese marble and Gothic style, you can access the Gallery of Modern Art. Finally, we cannot forget the Tower, which soars 84 metres above the Palace.
