"The Ala" Top 5 Page for this destination Arena Tip by Nemorino
Arena, Verona: 109 reviews and 191 photos
Considering that it was built nearly two thousand years ago, the Arena di Verona is remarkably well preserved -- so well preserved that it is still used for opera performances six nights a week during the summer, and for other large events during the spring and autumn. (Bruce Springsteen performed there in October 2006, for example.)
A distinctive feature of the Arena is the Ala or wing, which is all that is left of an external decorative wall that originally surrounded the entire structure. The rest of this outer wall was destroyed by an earthquake in the year 1117.
