Skywatch Friday

I'm linking up over here today!

The Arena, in Verona, Italy is an enormous, spectacular Roman amphitheatre, crumbling on the outside but still functioning today. It was erected in the 1st Century AD in an elliptical shape, and is the world's third-largest amphitheatre to survive from antiquity. Much of the outer ring was damaged during the earthquake of 1117 but the inner part is still intact and is used for opera performances in the summer.

Verona is best known as the home of Romeo and Juliet.
