Arena Di Verona
Just like the Colosseum in Rome, Verona has the Arena di, Verona. It has been preserved well and is truly a wonder. However, many people are not aware of this landmark. It is at the heart of the town center. I came to learn that different games and shows used to be organized here. It is said that it can hold about 30,000 spectators. Walking inside the Arena, I was surprised by the architecture.
This castle sits on River Adige. It has been standing since 1354. Scaliger dynasty was behind the construction of this structure and used to serve as the city’s main mode of defense. I found a museum inside the castle. There are a plethora of artifacts that are on display. I went over to the bridge which is linked to the main complex and I have to say that the view from here is just spectacular.
Piazza Delle Erbe
There are many charming squares in the town. However, the most lively and popular one is the Piazza Delle Erbe. It located at the center of the town’s historic center. A visit to this place will tell you that this is the primary point of activity. I was amazed by the building facades, architecture, and the character of this area.
