Porta Soprana

Interesting
Head down the bustling Via di Ravecca, which is lined with cafés, trattorias and shops, and you will come to Porta Soprana (also known as Porta di Sant'Andrea), one of the oldest city entrances (12C), with its distinctive elegant twin towers. The gate is part of the ramparts built to defend the city from attacks by Frederick I. It is the counterpart of the Porta dei Vacca to the west.
