Verona: Arena

Country: Italy (Italia)
Region: Veneto
City: Verona
Location: Piazza BrÓ 28

Ancient Roman amphitheatre (not a theatre!), built in the 3rd century under the reign of Emperor Diocletian. Unlike most other amphitheatres, the Arena was never used as a quarry, hence it has been very well preserved. Occasional theatre and circus performances in modern times. Currently used for an annual summer opera festival that opened on 10 August 1913 with Verdi's "Aida". 23,000 seats.
