"The arena" The highlights Tip by iandsmith

The highlights, Verona: 64 reviews and 100 photos

  And still they come, despite the rain

Favorite thing: Beyond the double walls lies one of Italy's most famous attractions, the elliptical arena surrounded by 44 tiers that housed the Romans brutal blood lust.
Fortunately, some of the world doesn't yearn to see other people put to the sword on a regular basis and, for almost the last 100 years, the arena has been commonly used for concerts.
Testimony to its popularity is the tourist stall in the foreground - need I say more!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
