Ancient Arena

The ancient arena in Verona Italy is certainly a tribute to the architects who built it because this one is  still in use today.  Built in the first century, it has proved itself to stand the test of time.

As you can see from the sign above, there is a schedule of operas that were being performed here back in 2012 when I last visited.  In fact, the arena is known for its grand scale opera productions but, word has it that a few rock concerts have also used the venue from time to time.

Oh look, I think I see some actors headed that way right now!

Amazing that it is still standing and still in use.

You wonder what the original builders would think, knowing that it's still being used all this time later.
