34 Façade of Anfiteatro in Pompeii, Italy

Historians believe Pompeii’s Anfiteatro was built in 80 BC, making it one of the world’s oldest surviving amphitheaters. Its elliptical shape is supported by an elegant stone colonnade. The design has been copied by sports stadiums for nearly 2,100 years. Equally fascinating is it could be partially covered by a velarium or awning during inclement weather.
