Verona Arena

The Verona Arena (Verona di Arena in Italian) is a historical Roman amphitheatre built in AD 30 in Verona, Italy. It is one of the best preserved ancient structures of its kind and very famous for its opera performances. If we only had enough time to visit this city, I would like to watch one of the performances there.

Imagine during those ancient times when people can already built an architecture like this without having modern tools and equipment like what we have now? Respect to the builders of this amphitheatre. Don't you know that it can accommodate more than 30,000 spectators in ancient times? Truly amazing. I am happy to be there!
