Fondest memory: The arena 'Hemicycle theater' is in the second size in Italy (The first is Rome.) which is still used. I heard that the outdoors opera is grandly held in summer. Since it is very popular, I heard that it is quite difficult to get the tickets.

As for ancient times, the arena seems to have been used to duel with a lion or various fierce animals. Because do the stream of the blood, the arena seeming is such a meaning because it was sanded.
