Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.
Arena Di Verona (Roman Ampthitheatre in Verona)
Address: Piazza Bra, 1, 37121 Verona VR, Italy
Apart from doing a Romeo and Juliet tour while in Verona, this was one of our first stops: the Arena Di Verona or the Roman Amphitheatre.
According to Wikipedia:
The Verona Arena is a Romanamphitheatre in Piazza Bra in Verona, Italy built in the first century. It is still in use today and is internationally famous for the large-scale opera performances given there.
Still from the same Wikipedia source:
It is one of the best preserved ancient structures of its kind. In ancient times, nearly 30,000 people was the housing capacity of the Arena. Nowadays, for security reasons, the maximum attendance is 15,000 people.
