Verona with Dom, Ana & Ida
Walking around the Roman Arena in Verona was surreal. A cold day, but not bad compared to the 6" of snow we left in Munich. We tried walking the stairs to keep warm, and ended up with sore quads the next day! It was an amazing view from the top level, with the remains of the 4 arches that were still standing after the earthquake in 1117ad, and the roof tops of the town.
There are still performances given during the summer months, when the marble seats would be a natural air conditioning in the evening, instead of causing your legs to go blue!
