Verona, The Amphitheatre

Verona Italy Amphitheatre

“There is no world without Verona walls                                                                           But purgatory, torture, hell itself                                                                                     Hence banished is banish’d from the world                                                                      And world’s exile is death”                                                                                      Shakespeare – Romeo and Juliet

  1. I was there only a month ago! Climbed to the top of the amphitheatre (legs suffered for it the next couple of days). When we were there they were setting it up for a rock concert – Adriano. Fascinating to see the ancient structure still very much a part of the town’s life.

    You have given us reasons to visit Verona.
