Porta San Bartolomeo ("Saint Barthelemy's gate"), commonly named Porta San Bortolo, was built in the 14th century and today it is the only medieval gate left of those that composed the walls. It connects the homonymous quarter to Piazza Merlin and, across the arches, to Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II and Piazza Garibaldi.
The first photo was taken from via Miani, the second from piazza Merlin (unfortunately a lorry spoiled the romantic atmosphere the gate suggests).

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
