Got here early and were able to walk around and take it all in especially the views from the top. The shooting star is great and even more so if you come a night

Visitting the Arena in Verona is quite an impressive activity. A 2000 year old building which used to hold up to 30.000 people, and which still is used nowadays for public performances. Wow. Also, the view from the top row, with the Alps at the...More
