abstract

Verona in the Roman age had an important economic role, thanks to its central geographical position, the presence of some of the most important Cisalpine roads and the river Adige which was then largely navigable. The road network was integrated with the fluvial transport on the Adige along with the Adigetto canal and probably the Acqua Morta branch of the river. Archaeological research has revealed structures that can be interpreted as docks and warehouses, indicating the possible location of some of the main harbour ports along the river.
