Arena di Verona
Amphitheatre in Verona
The Verona Arena is a Roman amphitheatre located in the historic centre of Verona , an icon of the Venetian city together with the figures of Romeo and Juliet . It is one of the large buildings that have characterized Roman architecture and one of the ancient amphitheatres that has come to us with the best degree of conservation, thanks to the systematic restorations carried out since the sixteenth century ; precisely for this reason, despite the numerous transformations it has undergone, it allows the visitor to easily understand the structure of this kind of buildings, rigorously subject to the function for which they were intended but still endowed with an essential beauty.
During the summer months it hosts the famous Areniano opera festival , whose seasons have taken place continuously since 1913, while the rest of the year is the destination of many international singers and musicians.
